Rectification of light refraction in curved waveguide arrays

Preprint English OPEN
Longhi, S.;

An 'optical ratchet' for discretized light in photonic lattices, which enables to observe rectification of light refraction at any input beam conditions, is theoretically presented, and a possible experimental implementation based on periodically-curved zigzag waveguide... View more
