Spotlight Summary by David Powell
Strong magnetochiral dichroism in chiral/magnetic layered heterostructures
- Faraday rotation and optical activity are two distinct phenomena which lead to different propagation velocities for the two circular polarizations of light. Faraday rotation is a non-reciprocal effect, dependent on the...

Spotlight Summary by Johann Toudert
Spectrally interleaved topologies using geometric phase metasurfaces
- Two-dimensional assemblies of subwavelength nano-antennas, also called metasurfaces, enable an advanced manipulation of visible light on ultra-compact material platforms, as required for next-generation optical devices....
