This paper investigates theoretically and numerically the propagation characteristics of a circular Airy beam (CAB) in a uniaxial crystal in detail. The beam loses its boundary cylindrical symmetry during propagation because of the medium anisotropy, although it propagates along the optical axis. This effect of anisotropy on the propagating beam becomes increasingly evident with the increase of the propagation distance. Another main influential factor of the propagation characteristics is the ratio of the extraordinary refractive index to the ordinary refractive index (ne/no). The more the value deviates from 1, the worse the symmetry of the beam intensity distribution becomes. The polarization becomes notably complicated, but possesses a vortex state with a topological charge of 2 during propagation. The abruptly autofocusing characteristic, the most important property of CABs, also appears when the crystal length is long enough, which is greatly different from that characteristic in isotropic media. This work is helpful for the design of optical devices based on uniaxial crystals for beams with some special wavefronts. © 2017 Optical Society of America.

This paper investigates theoretically and numerically on the electro-optical coupling (EOC) for a circular Airy beam (CAB) propagating along the optical axis of a uniaxial crystal after deducing the wave coupling equations of EOC. For a circularly polarized incident CAB, EOC can be used to generate vortex beam by coupling the incident left-handed component into the right-handed vortex component with a vortex topological charge of 2. What’s more, EOC plays important role in enhancing or suppressing the abrupt autofocusing, the most important property of CABs, for both left-handed and right-handed components. Near the focal plane, EOC can result in electrically controllable optical “needle” and “cage”, which shall be interesting in micromanipulation. In addition, EOC can influence or even forbid the exchange between spin angular momentum (SAM) and orbit angular momentum (OAM). For a linearly polarized incident CAB, its two Cartesian field components of the beam cannot only couple their powers to each other, but also lead to the changes of the intensity pattern and polarization distributions. The polarization state becomes spatially inhomogeneous, and possesses vortex phase with a topological charge of 2 during propagation. EOC presents a new way to control an Airy beam fast and efficiently. © 2017 Optical Society of America

The propagation characteristics of the circular Airy beam (CAB) modified with low-pass filtering is investigated in details in this paper. Based on a modification of the angular spectrum of CAB, we get a new kind of CAB constructed with low frequency spectrum, which is called "LCAB" for short. A suitable low-pass filter is introduced to cut off the high frequency angular spectrum and maintain the low frequency domain mainly affecting the front light rings of CAB. Two apodization parameters are employed to optimize the low-pass filtering, which influence the propagation characteristic of the LCAB. Fortunately, the abruptly autofocusing property, the most important property of CAB, is still maintained in LCAB. What is more, the initial ring number and the focal spot length can be controlled by adjusting the two apodization parameters. If the two apodization parameters are appropriately chosen, one can form an elegant optical needle which plays an important role in optical manipulations. The numerical results show that the less front light rings are, the longer the optical needle is. It should be noted that the width of the optical needle will increase as long as the length increases, and lead to the decline of the maximum intensity of the optical needle. © 2017 SPIE.

"Quasi-phase matching" is first introduced to the optical activity (OA) effect and a wave coupling theory for the quasi-phase-matched (QPM) OA effect in periodically poled "gyroelectric" crystals is developed. The OA effect is observed clearly even though the propagating direction of light deviates far from the optical axis in the QPM crystal with both optical activity and natural birefringence. The QPM OA effect provides a special way to determine the gyration coefficients that cannot be observed by the normal OA effect, and it provides a principle for building optical filters without external field. © 2009 Springer-Verlag.

We present a versatile add-drop integrated photonic filter (ADF) consisting of nonreciprocal waveguides in which the propagation of light is restricted in one predetermined direction. With the bus and add/drop waveguides symmetrically coupled through a cavity, the four-port device allows each individual port to add and/or drop a signal of the same frequency. The scheme is general and we demonstrate the nonreciprocal ADF with magneto-optical photonic crystals. The filter is immune to waveguide defects, allowing straightforward implementation of multi-channel ADFs by cascading the four-port designs. The results should find applications in wavelength-division multiplexing and related integrated photonic techniques. © 2014 AIP Publishing LLC.

A resonance splitting effect is investigated in a system composed of two cavities coupled by two unidirectional waveguides. Both theoretical analysis and numerical calculations demonstrate that the resonance splitting (indicating a coupling between the cavities) is independent of the phase shift between the cavities, which is in contrast to previous research where reciprocal waveguides are used. Moreover, this splitting can be tunable by an external magnetic field. Our findings offer a possibility to realize effective coupling between remote on-chip resonators, which is highly demanded in the next-generation photonic circuits. © 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

A new defect structure of two-dimensional magnetic-photonic crystal is given and a new three-port Y-junction circulator using a ferrite cylinder is proposed in this short paper. Based on the agreements between the resonance frequency of micro-cavity constructed by a point defect in the 2D triangular lattice photonic crystal with those numerical results of corresponding literatures, external characteristics of the circulator were calculated by the plane wave expansion method and finite element method. According to the scaling theory of Maxwell's equations, a 3 cm Y-junction 2D MPCs circulator is developed by scaling the radius of the center ferrite cylinder. The results show that there is a significant improvement for insertion loss 0.062 dB and isolation 26.2 dB compared with those in literatures. © 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

An optical logic NOT gate (OLNG) is presented based on photonic crystal (PhC) waveguides without nonlinear materials and optical amplifiers. Also, a way of determining the operating parameters is presented. It is demonstrated through finite-difference time-domain simulations that the structure presented can operate as an OLNG. The optimized contrast ratio, defined as the logic-"1" output power divided by the logic-"0" output power, is found to be 297.07 or 24.73 dB. The size of the OLNG can be as small as 7a × 7a, where a is the lattice constant of the PhC. Further, the OLNG presented in this paper can operate at a bit rate as high as 2.155 Tbit?s, which is much higher than that of electronic or optical logic gates developed until now. Moreover, as it is not based on the nonlinear effect, the OLNG can operate at very low powers and a relatively large operating bandwidth. This is favorable for large-scale optical integration and for developing multiwavelength parallel-processing optical logic systems. © 2012 Optical Society of America.

A three-dimensional (3-D) shape measurement method using partial coding structured light is proposed. This method combines the conventional phase unwrapping technique with partial coding technique, which not only effectively reduces the number of projected and captured images but also enhances the reliability of phase unwrapping. First, several adjacent stripes are integrated by partial coding technique to reduce the density of stripes, and then a conventional phase unwrapping algorithm is applied to obtain the absolute phase of the entire image with integrated stripes. Experimental results show that this method can greatly reduce the number of images which are needed for reconstruction, and it has a good accuracy and reliability.

Based on coordinate transformation, we extend the theory of unidirectional surface mode at a plane interface to a more general case of arbitrary boundary. We provide direct simulations to prove the validity of extension. Because it depends only on the signs of off-diagonal elements in the tensor of permittivity (for TM mode) or permeability (for TE mode), the unidirectionality is robust in a wide range of frequency. Moreover, this kind of surface mode is fairly robust with smoothly changing surface. These properties are very useful to design compact nonreciprocal component with wide range of operating frequency in various cases, such as broadband isolators and circulators. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications.
