Ladies and Gentlemen. Due to the coronavirus epidemic in Poland, the CTP PAS is operating in a limited way. In particular, until further notice the secretariat and the accountancy of the CTP PAS will be working only remotely. Contact with the administration is possible only by an e-mail. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Colloquium details

Name Center for Theoretical Physics Colloquium
Title Artificial Rashba-Dresselhaus gauge field in anisotropic microcavities

I will present a summary of a recent work done together with the experimental group at the University of Warsaw. We observed the artificial Rashba-Dresselhaus spin-orbit interaction of photons in a liquid crystal–filled optical cavity. The gauge field was realized without the use of any metamaterial structuring and the same method can be implemented with any other uniaxially anisotropic material. This observation opens the door to photonic emulators of quantum Hamiltonians with internal degrees of freedom.
