Polarization-Preserving Anisotropic Mirror on the Basis of Metal–Dielectric Nanocomposite
The model of a polarization-preserving anisotropic mirror is proposed. The mirror is a plane boundary of a metal–dielectric nanocomposite that consists of silver spheroidal nanoparticles dispersed in a transparent matrix. ...
Chiral Optical Tamm States: Temporal Coupled-Mode Theory
The chiral optical Tamm state (COTS) is a special localized state at the interface of a handedness-preserving mirror and a structurally chiral medium such as a cholesteric liquid crystal or a chiral sculptured thin film. ...
Optical Tamm states at the interface between a photonic crystal and an epsilon-near-zero nanocomposite
The spectral properties of a one-dimensional photonic crystal bounded with a resonance- absorbing nanocomposite layer are investigated. The bulk concentrations of metal nanoparticles dispersed in a transparent nanocomposite ...
The optical Tamm states at the interface between a photonic crystal and nanoporous silver
The optical Tamm states (OTSs) localized at the edges of a photonic crystal bounded by a nanoporous silver (NPS) film are investigated. NPS involves spherical vacuum nanopores dispersed in the metal matrix and is characterized ...
Treating many-body quantum systems by means of Classical Mechanics
Many-body physics of identical particles is commonly believed to be a sovereign territory of Quantum Mechanics. The aim of this contribution is to show that it is actually not the case and one gets useful insights into a ...
Localized optical states in a liquid-crystal structure adjacent to a metal
The spectrum of light transmission through a structure consisting of a metallic layer and a cholesteric liquid crystal with an induced planar defect is calculated. The possibility of existence of localized states at the ...
