Experimental observation of the trapped rainbow
Date of this Version5-2010
This document has been peer-reviewed.
We report on the experimental demonstration of the broadband "trapped rainbow" in the visible frequency range using an adiabatically tapered optical nano waveguide. Being a distinct case of the slow light phenomenon, the trapped rainbow effect could be applied to optical computing and signal processing, such as spectroscopy on a chip, and to providing enhanced light-matter interactions.
