  • Special Seminar: "Exploiting the roles of photon spin and electron spin in light-matter interaction"

    In light-matter interaction, the conservation of angular momentum requires the angular momentum transfer between light and matter, which consequently couples light polarization to various state variables of materials, such as mechanical motion, magnetization or charge current, and gives rise to a plethora of intriguing phenomena. In this talk, I will discuss the angular momentum transfer in two different scenarios with a focus on the roles of photon and electron spin.
