Rotary Photon Drag Paper Published In Science

We recently published a paper in collaboration with the group of Professor Miles Padgett at the University of Glasgow on the topic of rotary photon drag experienced by light moving through a rotating slow light medium.

This work was published in Science Magazine and received press coverage on Physicsworld and Yahoo News.
