Paper Abstract

One of concepts giving opportunities for studying of topological insulators in non-magnetic materials, or creating scattering-immune in optical waveguides is creation of synthetic gauge fields in photonic systems. It was shown that gauge fields shift the band-gaps of optical waves, which can be applied to implement one-way nonreciprocal waveguides, even though both the waveguide core and cladding are in a topologically trivial state [1]. In our work we propose a method to create a gauge field in a synthetic photonic mesh lattice – an optical device proved its high versatility for optical experiments [2]. We demonstrate presence of localized modes due to nontrivial gauge field circulation.
