Giant Polarization Drag in a Gas of Molecular Superrotors

27 Sep 2019 Steinitz Uri Averbukh Ilya Sh.

Experiments on light dragging in a moving medium laid the cornerstones of modern physics more than a century ago, and they still are in the focus of current research. When linearly polarized light is transmitted through a rotating dielectric, the polarization plane is slightly rotated -- a phenomenon first studied by Fermi in 1923... (read more)
