Observation of localized ground and excited orbitals in graphene photonic ribbons
MetadataShow full item record
We report on the experimental realization of a quasi-one-dimensional photonic graphene ribbon supporting four flat-bands (FBs). We study the dynamics of fundamental and dipolar modes, which are analogous to the s and p orbitals, respectively. In the experiment, both modes (orbitals) are effectively decoupled from each other, implying two sets of six bands, where two of them are completely flat (dispersionless). Using an image generator setup, we excite the s and p FB modes and demonstrate their non-diffracting propagation for the first time. Our results open an exciting route towards photonic emulation of higher orbital dynamics.
