The Design for a Nanoscale Single-Photon Spin Splitter

10 Feb 2018 Li G. Sheremet A. S. Ge R. Liew T. C. H. Kavokin A. V.

We propose using the effective spin-orbit interaction of light in Bragg-modulated cylindrical waveguides for the effcient separation of spin-up and spin-down photons emitted by a single photon emitter. Due to the spin and directional dependence of photonic stopbands in the waveguides, spin-up (down) photon propagation in the negative (positive) direction along the waveguide axis is blocked while the same photon freely propagates in the opposite direction...
