Abstract

We demonstrate a possibility of using geometry to deterministically control nonlocal correlation of waves undergoing mesoscopic transport through a disordered waveguide. In case of nondissipative medium, we find an explicit relationship between correlation and the shape of the system. Inverting this relationship, we realize inverse design: we obtain specific waveguide shape that leads to a predetermined nonlocal correlation. The proposed technique offers an approach to coherent control of wave propagation in random media that is complementary to wave-front shaping.
