In a series of papers, we have predicted the existence of new phases of matter where the topological classification is governed by the spin-1 properties of the photon.
Our work led to a fundamental understanding of universal spin-momentum locking of light and near-field properties of light's polarization.
We introduced a universal right handed electromagnetic triplet consisting of electromagnetic momentum, decay and spin.
We introduced fermionic waveguides to explore spatial dynamics of electron spin in Dirac's equation.
We have predicted the existence of a new topological phase of matter exhibiting photon spin-1 quantization.

We have shown that spin polarized thermal radiation is a striking feature of non-equilibrium as well as non-reciprocal systems.
High temperature materials with unique properties are a major focus of our research with multiple engineering applications.
