Material control by topological light-waves with total angular momentum

Research Project Outline

Topological light-waves, showing a total angular momentum defined as the vector sum of the orbital and spin angular momenta, provide a new quantum-mechanical scope for optics, and they can also lead to important new applications including the nano-scale processing of materials such as micro-needle fabrication. We are aiming to open novel photonic science fields and create new optical technologies by utilizing the topological light-waves produced by ultra-high-power laser technology and extreme nonlinear optics.
