Physicists from the University of Rostock, the Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat, the Julius-Maximilians University of W├╝rzburg and the Indiana University Indianapolis (IUPUI) have shown for the first time that light can propagate ...

Spiral dislocation gives 3D topological photonics a robust edge

Crystals have enthralled humans for thousands of years with their visual beauty and elegant symmetrical shapes, and, more recently, with their numerous technological applications. Fundamentally, these materials are based ...

Triple phase transition in a photonic quasicrystal observed

Together with their colleague Professor Stefano Longhi (Polytechnic Institute of Milan), physicists from the group of Professor Alexander Szameit (University of Rostock) have discovered a triple phase transition. At the critical ...
