Science Opportunities with Intense Ultrafast Lasers: Reaching for the Brightest Light

Focused laser intensities up to a zettawatt/cm2 or more are now possible, creating unique opportunities for science in extreme conditions.  These laser fields can accelerate and collide elementary particles, drive nuclear reactions, heat matter to conditions found in stars, or even create matter out of the empty vacuum.

Asymmetrical optical devices and non-Hermitian Hamiltonians in EPL

PT-symmetry has become one of the fastest growing fields in optics.
And yet PT-symmetry is only one among a group of  possible symmetries  of Non-Hermitian Hamiltonians.
We review these symmetries and their selection rules to construct different asymmetric devices.
Among six possible types of asymmetric devices (considering asymmetries in reflection and transmission),PT-symmetry can only produce one of them. Non-Hermitian, non-PT optics holds promise of many interesting and useful effects and applications.  
EPL has supported this research and welcomes Perspective articles in the field.
