Spin-orbit interactions of light

Bliokh, Konstantin; Rodríguez-Fortuño, F. J.; Nori, Franco; Zayats, Anatoly V


Light carries both spin and orbital angular momentum. These dynamical properties are determined by the polarization and spatial degrees of freedom of light. Nano-optics, photonics and plasmonics tend to explore subwavelength scales and additional degrees of freedom of structured-that is, spatially inhomogeneous-optical fields. In such fields, spin and orbital properties become strongly coupled with each other. In this Review we cover the fundamental origins and important applications of the...[Show more]
