The Nature of Light: What Are Photons?
Date: Tuesday 31 January 2017
Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Location: InterContinental Hotel, Sutter Room
Session Chair: Narasimha S. Prasad, NASA Langley Research Ctr. (United States)

The purpose of this workshop is to help stimulate the generation of inquiring questions by our optical engineers, which is an excellent way to become more effective innovators. The key idea is to pay closer attention to visualize the invisible interaction processes that go on between light and matter in our instruments that finally give rise to the data we record. The speaker, Chandra Roychoudhuri, applied this method of thinking and rediscovered the forgotten property, Non-Interaction of Waves (NIW) [1] and found that it applies to all propagating wave amplitudes. The NIW-property was explicitly underscored by Huygens [2] as the postulate that waves advance through perpetual generation of non-interacting secondary wavelets. This concept has been incorporated in the Huygens-Fresnel diffraction integral that is the "bed-rock" foundation for all classical optical phenomena.

In this forum, Chandra will first present videos of water and long-spring waves propagating through each other without losing their individual characteristics; meaning they pass through each other without any interactions. This will be followed by a number of interferometer experiments demonstrating that light wave amplitudes, by themselves, cannot reorganize their energy distributions (generate fringes) without some classical and/or quantum mechanical energy transfer process facilitated by appropriate material dipoles.

The NIW-property will be used to articulate many inquiring questions that give rise to deeper understandings for a selected set of optical phenomena. Here are a couple of examples. What are the physical processes behind the final 50% beam-combiner in a Mach-Zehnder interferometer, to behave as a 100% reflector or a transmitter, simply depending upon the changing relative phase difference between the two incident, opposing collimated beams? Videos of experimental record will be shown while explaining the physical processes involved. Or, why is it that when the incident beam on a Michelson interferometer contains multiple phase-steady frequencies, (i) the data out of a slow detector helps us carry out Michelson's Fourier transform spectrometry; but, (ii) generates heterodyne oscillatory current with a fast detector? These and many other examples of different optical phenomena will be elaborated using experiments, preceded by inquiring questions about the relevant light-matter interaction processes.
