Review Articles


Non-Hermitian photonics based on parity–time symmetry    pp752 - 762
Liang Feng, Ramy El-Ganainy & Li Ge

General concepts and recent developments of parity–time symmetry in classical photonics are reviewed.


Two-dimensional topological photonics    pp763 - 773
Alexander B. Khanikaev & Gennady Shvets

Topological photonic structures offer unique features such as reflection-free and non-reciprocal devices. This Review highlights the experimental progress in the relatively new field of photonic topology.


Non-reciprocal photonics based on time modulation    pp774 - 783
Dimitrios L. Sounas & Andrea Al├╣

The progress on non-reciprocal photonic devices enabled by temporal modulation is reviewed.




Continuous-wave lasing in an organic–inorganic lead halide perovskite semiconductor    pp784 - 788


Optically pumped continuous-wave lasing is achieved in methylammonium lead iodide (MAPbI3) distributed feedback lasers that are maintained below the MAPbI3 tetragonal-to-orthorhombic phase transition temperature of 160 K.


Self-starting harmonic frequency comb generation in a quantum cascade laser    pp789 - 792
Dmitry Kazakov, Marco Piccardo, Yongrui Wang, Paul Chevalier, Tobias S. Mansuripur et al.

Self-starting harmonic frequency comb generation with a THz repetition rate in a quantum cascade laser is demonstrated. The mode spacing uniformity is verified to within 5 × 10-12 parts of the central frequency. The findings extend the range of applications of quantum cascade laser frequency combs.




Attosecond electron pulse trains and quantum state reconstruction in ultrafast transmission electron microscopy    pp793 - 797
Katharina E. Priebe, Christopher Rathje, Sergey V. Yalunin, Thorsten Hohage, Armin Feist et al.

Attosecond electron pulse trains in electron microscopy are demonstrated through the coupling of phase-locked multicolour optical fields with electron pulses. A new variant of quantum state tomography for free-electron ensembles is established.


Chalcogenide glass-on-graphene photonics    pp798 - 805
Hongtao Lin, Yi Song, Yizhong Huang, Derek Kita, Skylar Deckoff-Jones et al.

Exploiting the peculiar properties of graphene, a series of high-performance glass-on-graphene devices, such as polarizers, thermo-optic switches and mid-infrared waveguide-integrated photodetectors and modulators are realized.


Plasmonic coupling at a metal/semiconductor interface    pp806 - 812
Shijing Tan, Adam Argondizzo, Jindong Ren, Liming Liu, Jin Zhao et al.

The role of direct plasmonic coupling in hot-electron generation at Ag/TiO2 interfaces is clarified by two-photon photoemission spectroscopy.
