Constant flux states and their applications

Martin Claassen, Hakan E. Türeci

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Constant flux states describe the steady state response of a photonic medium with an arbitrary, possibly frequency dependent index of refraction n(x, ω) to a harmonically oscillating source. Constant flux states were initially introduced to describe steady state oscillations of complex lasers. Here, we describe their application to various phenomena in photonics and quantum optics.
