Periodic Report - SPIVOR (Geometrical aspects of spin and vortex dynamics in electromagnetic and matter waves)

Project ID: 220108
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

The SPIVOR project was funded under the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and carried out extensive investigations of the Spin-orbit interaction (SOI) phenomena in optics and quantum mechanics in order to investigate geometrical aspects of spin and vortex dynamics in electromagnetic and matter waves.

This document contains three explanatory figures that highlight the principal project findings. Firstly, the observed optical nanoprobing via spin-orbit interaction of light is presented. The second figure refers to angular momenta and spin-orbit interaction of photons in free space. Finally, the third figure represents the probability density and current distributions for Dirac electron vortex beams with different spins and vortex charges.
