Observation of surface states with algebraic localization    [PDF]

G. Corrielli, G. Della Valle, A. Crespi, R. Osellame, S. Longhi
We introduce and experimentally demonstrate a class of surface bound states with algebraic decay in a one-dimensional tight-binding lattice. Such states have an energy embedded in the spectrum of scattered states and are structurally stable against perturbations of lattice parameters. Experimental demonstration of surface states with algebraic localization is presented in an array of evanescently-coupled optical waveguides with tailored coupling rates.
