Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics
Prof. Milchberg’s group shows that photons in vacuum can have orbital angular momentum vectors pointing sideways—a result orthogonal to the many decades-long expectation that OAM vectors could only point forward or backward.
IREAP was established with the purpose to introduce visibility into the world of applied physics with the mission to solve the world's problems by way of research and scientific innovations.
IREAP is a joint institute of the College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences (CMNS) and A. James Clark School of Engineering (ENGR) and works to support the research and sustained innovations of faculty from both fields.
