Artificial gauge field for a light ray

Artificial gauge field for a light ray An optical ray equation is derived for a trajectory in a medium with directional birefringence. The birefringence is described as an artificial gauge field for light that gives an effective magnetic field and a Lorentz force on light. The gauge invariance is also confirmed. This paper opens a door to realize an artificial gauge field for a light ray in a nonreciprocal medium. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review A American Physical Society (APS)
