Abstract

We introduce the concept of the inverse prism as the dual of the conventional prism and deduce from this duality an implementation of it based on temporal discontinuity and spatial dispersion provided by anisotropy. Moreover, we show that this inverse prism exhibits the following three unique properties: chromatic refraction birefringence, ordinary monochromatic and extraordinary polychromatic temporal refraction, and linear-to-Lissajous polarization transformation.
