2Physics Quote:
"Can photons in vacuum interact? The answer is not, since the vacuum is a linear medium where electromagnetic excitations and waves simply sum up, crossing themselves with no interaction. There exist a plenty of nonlinear media where the propagation features depend on the concentration of the waves or particles themselves. For example travelling photons in a nonlinear optical medium modify their structures during the propagation, attracting or repelling each other depending on the focusing or defocusing properties of the medium, and giving rise to self-sustained preserving profiles such as space and time solitons or rapidly rising fronts such as shock waves." -- Lorenzo Dominici, Mikhail Petrov, Michal Matuszewski, Dario Ballarini, Milena De Giorgi, David Colas, Emiliano Cancellieri, Blanca Silva Fernández, Alberto Bramati, Giuseppe Gigli, Alexei Kavokin, Fabrice Laussy, Daniele Sanvitto.

Words from '2Physics'

Our aim is to give you some good reading and information
and concepts every day.

You'll notice we'll avoid using hyperlinks. Hyperlinks are
very useful things but we feel a reader get easily lost from
his/her goal of enjoyment if he/she gets too many opportunities
of getting into newer and newer links of information.

Our aim again is your entertainment - through Physics.
If you get interested, you yourself will start searching for
more information or will leave your comments and requests.
We'll certainly follow those comments ...
