    2011 Best of: by the OSA's OPN magazine, see "Spacetime Cloaking", M. McCall, P. Kinsler, OPN p.43, December 2011
    Context: A new paradigm in cloaking theory -- the "event cloak" -- where a view of the scenery remains undisturbed, but specific events can be edited from view. Contrast this with the ordinary cloak, where objects are either always invisible, or where they disappear or reappear as the cloak is turned on and off. This concept gained significant attention in the media and amongst wider public, as well as in the research community. Of course, despite the eye-catching analogies based on safecrackers and Star-Trek, any early implementations will use optical systems and apply on the atomic scale over sub-microsecond timescales.

    --------[retrieve: journal, arXiv:0810.5689 (pre-proof), doi:10.1103/PhysRevA.81.013819]
    Context: With its origins in a chance meeting between myself and John Dudley at CLEO 2006, this paper represents the leading edge formulation for models of nonlinear optical pulse propagation. No other methodology even gets close to the desired end-result of a single first-order wave equation whilst only using a single, simple approximation: that pulse evolution is slow on the scale of a wavelength. Explicit comparison term-for-term between the approximate uni-directional form and an exact bi-directional form are possible. While under review, I also added magnetic dispersion and nonlinearity -- thus the paper now serves as a springboard from which to apply such concepts to the world of lumpy & resonant metamaterials.
  11. "Comment on: On the inapplicability of a negative-phase-velocity condition as a negative refraction condition for active materials",
    P. Kinsler, Microwave Opt. Techn. Lett., 52, 247 (2010).

  12. "Four Poynting Theorems",
    P. Kinsler, A. Favaro, M. W. McCall, Eur. J. Phys. 30, 983-993 (2009).
    --------[retrieve: journal, arXiv:0908.1721, doi:10.1088/0143-0807/30/5/007]
    Context: Arguments have flowed for nearly a century between proponents of an ExH Poynting vector and those who prefer DxB; and all the while the electromagnetics community happily used ExB. Some researchers prefer ExB because it handles magnetic effects elegantly -- so why doesn't (dielectric) optics use DxH? In this paper we constructed mathematically and physically valid electromagnetic continuity equations for all four choices of electromagnetic flux vector. Now the choice is about making a particular problem easier to analyse, e.g. DxH is particularly instructive and useful for surface plasmons.
  13. "Comment on ``Correct definition of the Poynting vector in electrically and magnetically polarizable medium reveals that negative refraction is impossible.''",
    A. Favaro, P. Kinsler, M. W. McCall, Opt. Express 17, 15167-15169 (2009).
    --------[retrieve: journal, doi:10.1364/OE.17.015167].
  14. "The refractive index and wavevector in passive or active media",
    P. Kinsler, Phys. Rev. A79, 023839 (2009).
    --------[retrieve: journal, arXiv:0901.2466, doi:10.1103/PhysRevA.79.023839]
    Context: The usual definition of refractive index (and hence wavevector) is not always in intuitive agreement with what physically happens to propagating electromagnetic waves. The work combines some lessons from Stockman's PRL and mine and Martin McCall's response to that, with the theoretical machinery that results from simplifications of the second order wave equation (see the following paper in this list). Although the traditional definition is not wrong, my alternate proposal gives the expected evanescent wavevector in the lossy-plasmon case - but the traditional definition predicts oscillations!
  15. "Causality-based conditions for a negative refractive index must be used with care",
    P. Kinsler, M. W. McCall, Phys. Rev. Lett. 101, 167401 (2008).
    --------[retrieve: journal, arXiv:0812.1521, doi:10.1103/PhysRevLett.101.167401]
    Context: A response to the challenge laid down by Stockman's 2007 Phys. Rev. Lett. which claimed that useful (low-loss) negative refraction was prohibited by causality. By rederiving the result from first principles, it instead became clear that any causal restrictions were nowhere near as inflexible as claimed; in fact Stockman's conclusions were {flawed}, even if the bare mathematics was not. Nevertheless, taking a positive approach, I used the opportunity to examine the true limits and opportunities offered by causal constraints on negative refraction.

  18. ** "Limits of the uni-directional pulse propagation approximation",
    P. Kinsler, J. Opt. Soc. Am. B24, 2363-2368 (2007).
    --------[retrieve: journal, doi:10.1364/JOSAB.24.002363, arXiv:0707.0986 (with extra appendix)]
    Context: This answers a question underpinning all directional formulations of (and approximations to) electromagnetic pulse propagation: To what extent is does forward-going field generate or couple to a backward one?. The results rely on the precise dovetailing of three distinct approaches: bi- and uni-directional wave equations, bi- and uni-directional numerical simulation, and analytic solutions based on the method of characteristics, Now we can see whether ``forward-going'' pulses really do stay forward-going, and put exact and reliable analytical constraints on the processes and materials involved.
