Abstract

We employ renormalization ideas in order to describe the interplay between a frozen mode regime—a scattering feature associated with the presence of stationary inflection point (SIP) singularities—and disorder in photonic systems. Specifically, we demonstrate the existence of a β-function for a (rescaled) Wigner delay time PL at SIP frequencies which depends on PL itself and controls its variation with the system size L and disorder strength.
