Light Focusing in the Anderson regime


Anderson localization is a regime in which diffusion is inhibited and waves (also electromagnetic waves) get localized. In a recent paper on Nat. Commun. we exploit adaptive optics to achieve focusing in disordered optical fibres in the Anderson regime.


Migrating Anderson Modes on Phys. Rev. Lett.

Anderson localization means immoble waves in a disordered structure. We demonstrate that this paradigm is revolutionized when nonlinearity and nonlocality tak part to the game: Modes start to migrate when they “feel heat” generated by light absorbed along the fiber. See more on the journal article.
