Non-Hermitian trimers: PT-symmetry versus pseudo-Hermiticity
We study a structure composed of three coupled waveguides with gain and loss, a non-Hermitian trimer. We demonstrate that the mode spectrum can be entirely real if the waveguides are placed in a special order and at certain distances between each other. Such structures generally lack a spatial symmetry, in contrast to parity-time symmetric trimers which are known to feature a real spectrum. We also determine a threshold for wave amplification and analyse the scattering properties of...[Show more]
