SPIN ELECTRODYNAMICS

Near-field Spin Photonics

    Our work led to a fundamental understanding of universal spin-momentum locking of light and near-field properties of light's polarization.

Spin-Momentum Locked Forces

    We introduced a universal right handed electromagnetic triplet consisting of electromagnetic momentum, decay and spin.

Dirac Wire

    We introduced fermionic waveguides to explore spatial dynamics of electron spin in Dirac's equation.

Quantum Gyro-Electric Phase of Matter

    We have predicted the existence of a new topological phase of matter exhibiting photon spin-1 quantization.
