Reversality of optical interactions in noncentrosymmetric media

Svirko, Y.P. and Zheludev, N.I. (1995) Reversality of optical interactions in noncentrosymmetric media Optics Letters, 20, (17), pp. 1809-1811. (doi:10.1364/OL.20.001809).

Record type: Article


The interaction of an electromagnetic wave with a noncentrosymmetric crystal is not necessarily time reversible, and the departure from reversality may be seen in nonlocal (wave-vector linear) phenomena. However, relativistic symmetry with respect to simultaneous time and space inversion is always preserved in optics.
