Abstract

We evaluate the quasi-one-dimensional (1D) electron dynamics in a NbSe3 ring crystal using polarization vortex pulses with various azimuthal distributions. The single particle relaxation component reveals a large anisotropy on the crystal, indicating that the electrons in the ring maintain their 1D character. The results also suggest that the polarization vortex evaluates the global polarization property of the closed-loop electron that plays an important role in the quantum correlation phenomena such as the Aharonov-Bohm effect.
