讲座题目:The Self-Consistent Theoretical Model and Numerical Method for Incorporating the Gain into Dispersive Nanostructures



报告简介:Photon exhibits wave-particle duality, and thus could transfer its momenta to an object when electromagnetic (EM) waves are reflected or absorbed. Moreover, EM waves also could carry spin angular momentum (SAM) with a circular polarization and orbital angular momentum (OAM) with a helical or twisted wavefront. Both SAM and OAM produce torque to rotate the object.  In this presentation, I will review our recent works on angular momenta of EM waves at microwave frequencies.

First, theoretical foundation is introduced for the SAM and OAM of EM waves. I will show how to derive the linear momentum by the de Broglie hypothesis. Then, the linear momentum will convert to the radiation momentum at the sourceless region. Finally, the radiation angular momentum will split into the SAM and OAM. Here, the similarities between angular momenta of electrons and those of photons will be discussed.

Second, omega-shaped chiral metamaterials are explored to generate circularly polarized waves carrying SAM. The chiral metamaterials have two aligned electric and magnetic dipole pairs, and thus show flexible capability to tune the polarization states of EM waves.

Third, the Berry-phase inspired metasurfaces are employed to convert plane waves carrying non-zero SAM and zero OAM to the vortex beams carrying the reversed SAM and arbitrary-order OAM. For reflective metasurfaces, the high conversion efficiency can be achieved by a perfect electric conductor-perfect magnetic conductor anisotropic surface. For transmittivemetasurfaces, the high conversion efficiency can be gained by a Babinet-inverted bi-layered structure.
