Generating optical vortex beams by momentum-space polarization vortices centred at bound states in the continuum

Nature Photonics, Published online: 06 July 2020; doi:10.1038/s41566-020-0658-1Optical vortices can be generated by applying the winding behaviour of resonances in the momentum space of a photonic crystal slab, which naturally exists and is associated with bound states in the continuum, to modify the phase front of a beam.

Phase-locked laser-wakefield electron acceleration

Nature Photonics, Published online: 06 July 2020; doi:10.1038/s41566-020-0657-2Independent velocity and intensity control of photons for driving a laser-plasma accelerator may enable a dephasing-free regime.

Super-resolution microscopy on a photonic chip

Nature Photonics, Published online: 26 June 2020; doi:10.1038/s41566-020-0656-3Using a photonic chip to generate the patterns of light needed for structured illumination microscopy could reduce the cost and complexity of super-resolution imaging.

Plants glow as they grow

Metalenses go atomically thick and tunable

Nature Photonics, Published online: 26 June 2020; doi:10.1038/s41566-020-0648-3By utilizing exciton resonances in atomically thick semiconductors, researchers have now demonstrated the ultimate downscaling of optical lenses and reported on their efficacious electrical tunability.

Refracting spacetime wave packets

Nature Photonics, Published online: 26 June 2020; doi:10.1038/s41566-020-0652-7A particular class of focused, pulsed light beams can propagate self-similarly in free space at a fixed group velocity. Now, scientists present a law of refraction that determines how the group velocity of these beams changes as they refract at an interface between two materials.
