报告题目：Symmetry in light scattering and finite element optical solver development
报告摘要：Symmetry is an indispensable tool to study different branches in physics, which also applies in optics and light scattering. In this work, we systematically introduce the concept of symmetry operation, and group approaches to examine the light scattering for finite scatters. Firstly, we reveal constraints of electromagnetic multipoles for symmetric scatterers, and scattering invariances of far-field patterns for arbitrary particle clusters based on duality symmetry and combined duality- rotation symmetry (n-fold, n≥3). Secondly, for finite scatters or scatter cluster with rotation symmetry (n-fold, n≥3), we prove that the invariant extinctions for arbitrary polarizations on the same latitude circle of the Poincare sphere and combined extra symmetry ensures invariant extinction, scattering and absorption for all polarizations covering the whole Poincare sphere. Thirdly, we examine the chiral responses of open photonic structures from perspectives of quasi-normal modes and polarization singularities of their far-field radiations. As plane waves are incident along those directions of mode singularity, the reciprocity ensures ideal maximization and minimization of optical chiralities, for corresponding mode radiations of circular and linear polarizations respectively. Lastly, I will briefly report our recent progress in the development of finite element optical solver.
