Proceedings Paper

Mimicking general relativity through plasmonic spin hall effect (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Hui Liu

Paper Abstract

Based on the concept of drawing equivalence between different configurations in transformation optics, we introduce a conceptual framework to investigate radiation from accelerating particles using chains of metamaterial atoms with SOI on a metasurface. The framework allows a global geometric picture in visualizing different one-dimensional space-times in general relativity using our two-dimensional metasurface. In particular, chains of metamaterial atoms along different curved lines in generating a common SPP caustic represent the same particle motions observed in difference reference frames, with relative motion through a general-relativistic transformation, such as a Rindler transformation from a reference Minkowski space-time. Such a tool allows us to study particle motions in different space-times in general while the particular geometric understanding provides us unique ways in generating SPP.
