Extraordinary paper by Ulf Leonhardt

  1. Aug 19, 2004 #1
    There is an extraordinary paper by Ulf Leonhardt: http://uk.arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0408046

    that has some major implications on measuring devise's.

    I can see stright away that there will be a "Mono-LISA" type of devise that could theoretically allow an Earth based "measure", medium of a precise nature that defy's belief!

    Amazing when Ulf's past interests have been in the development of 'Lab-Blackhole' creation mediums.

    Actually the LISA workers should be delving into this kind of soliton polarization (Polar-tron? my wording sorry! ), there is a recent paper regarding LISA , with a TDI (Time, Delay,.. or something?).

    Yes, there are some other works on the slow light soliton, delay and stopping of slow light solitons, and manipulation of slow-light solitons. If you are interested you can take a look at the web site http://www.slowlight.org and in the following paper:
    "Theory of slow-light solitons" http://arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0504096

    Show me some more websites. I like this topic very much.

    I mean some basics of slowing or stoping light.

    Yes indeed..many thanks I am very interested in this, again I thank you.

    Thank you, Soliton. I like this paper a lot. I think that Rybin, Vadeiko and Bishop have done amazing work on slow-light solitons. I especially like their exact result. It seems that one can actually stop the slow-light soliton by turning off the controlling laser with exponential rate. This is a rare case when an exact solution is really relevant.
    The picture in the paper with two beams and a dark break-up area between them on a "Black Square" is really something! By the way, there is a paper by M.D. Lukin in Rev. Mod. Phys. where EXPERIMENTAL picture is exactly the same!

    One of my friend says women as artificial intellegence. When I told him about this discovery by Dr. Lene Hau, he exclaimed with joy and said that it is a great achievement by the artificial intellegence.
