Wave-based liquid-interface metamaterials

Francois, Nicolas; Xia, Hua; Punzmann, Horst; Fontana, P. W.; Shats, Michael


The control of matter motion at liquid-gas interfaces opens an opportunity to create two-dimensional materials with remotely tunable properties. In analogy with optical lattices used in ultra-cold atom physics, such materials can be created by a wave field capable of dynamically guiding matter into periodic spatial structures. Here we show experimentally that such structures can be realized at the macroscopic scale on a liquid surface by using rotating waves. The wave angular momentum is...[Show more]
