Two bodies at different temperatures in vacuum constantly exchange heat. This energy flux is mediated by photons (shown here as wavy lines), which are generated by thermally fluctuating electrical currents (arrows) inside each body. The sun's warmth ...

Surprisingly, the scientists saw that the evanescent wave is exactly opposite of optical waves (photons) in terms of its spin and momentum. Evanescent waves carry a spin momentum that is independent of the polarization and helicity and is orthogonal to ...

Researchers at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan have used evanescent wave coupling to enhance the light output power of red light-emitting diodes (LEDs) by a factor of 3.8 [Guo-Dong Hao and Xue-Lun ...

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – A newly described property related to the "spin" and momentum of light waves suggests potential practical applications in photonic communications and photonic circuits. Scientists already knew that light waves have an electric ...

... plasmon mode propagating along a metal/dielectric interface can be excited at its resonance by an optical fiber core-guided mode via evanescent wave coupling when the phase-matching condition between the two modes is satisfied at a certain frequency.

Only the evanescent wave can penetrate from the surface into the film. In this situation, the experimentally observed scattering spot αz along the qz direction is given by the sum of the incident angle αi and the scattering angle αs derived from the ...

Alas, this is untenable. Who will determine the parameters of sense and reason? The media, the fear-mongers, the hyper-moralists – or, the direction of an evanescent wave of social sentiment? We're living in a frightful time, engaged in convoluting our ...
