Bernstein-Greene-Kruskal States in Nonlinear Optics

Xiaohang Sun, Yaotian Wang, Jason W. Fleischer

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We introduce and experimentally demonstrate photonic Bernstein-Greene-Kruskal states using statistical light in a nonlinear crystal. The results reveal coherence dynamics in phase space that cannot be observed in position or momentum space alone.
