Structured light on the nanoscale (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Structured light and structured matter are two fascinating branches of modern optics that recently started having a significant impact on each other. The synergy of complex beams, such as the beams carrying an orbital angular momentum, with nanostructured engineered media is likely to bring new dimensions to the science and applications of structured light, ranging from fundamentally new regimes of spin-orbit interaction to novel ways of information encoding for the future optical communication systems. We will discuss fundamental optical phenomena at the interface of singular and nonlinear optics in engineered optical media and show that the unique optical properties of optical nanostructures open unlimited prospects to “engineer” light itself.
