Summary of "Particlelike Behavior of Topological Defects in Linear Wave Packets in Photonic Graphene."

Topological defects, such as quantum vortices, determine the properties of quantum fluids. Their study has been at the center of activity in solid state and BEC communities. In parallel, the nontrivial behavior of linear wave packets with complex phase patterns was investigated by singular optics. Here, we study the formation, evolution, and interaction of optical vortices in wave packets at the Dirac point in photonic graphene. We show that while their exact behavior goes beyond the Dirac equation and requires a full account of the lattice properties, it can be still approximately described by an effective theory considering the phase singularities as "particles". These particles are capable of mutual interaction, with their trajectory obeying the laws of dynamics.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An electrochemical technique for measuring the current that flows in solution as a function of an applied voltage. The observed polarographic wave, resulting from the electrochemical response, depends on the way voltage is applied (linear sweep or differential pulse) and the type of electrode used. Usually a mercury drop electrode is used.

A technique of operations research for solving certain kinds of problems involving many variables where a best value or set of best values is to be found. It is most likely to be feasible when the quantity to be optimized, sometimes called the objective function, can be stated as a mathematical expression in terms of the various activities within the system, and when this expression is simply proportional to the measure of the activities, i.e., is linear, and when all the restrictions are also linear. It is different from computer programming, although problems using linear programming techniques may be programmed on a computer.

A vinyl polymer made from ethylene. It can be branched or linear. Branched or low-density polyethylene is tough and pliable but not to the same degree as linear polyethylene. Linear or high-density polyethylene has a greater hardness and tensile strength. Polyethylene is used in a variety of products, including implants and prostheses.
