Realistic phase screen model for forward multiple-scattering media

© 2020 Optical Society of America Existing random phase screen (RPS) models for forward multiple-scattering media fail to incorporate ballistic light. In this Letter, we redesign the angular spectrum of the screen by means of Monte Carlo simulation based on an assumption that a single screen should represent all the scattering events a photon experiences between two adjacent screens. Three examples demonstrate that the proposed model exhibits more realistic optical properties than conventional RPS models in terms of attenuation of ballistic light, evolution of beam profile, and angular memory effect. The proposed model also provides the flexibility to balance the computing accuracy, speed, and memory usage by tuning the screen spacing.

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...

This paper takes a fresh look at the debate over the relationship between digital technology and productivity. The argument of economic historian Robert J. Gordon is that digital technology will not lead to increases in productivity such as we saw in the last century, based on his analysis of the ...
