- Abstract: We prove that Lee’s et al. theoretical analysis and a final formula for ray trajectories in an elliptic cylindrical optical ‘black hole’ are incorrect. By utilizing a full wave finite-element simulation we show that a non-paraxial Gaussian beam does not follow a trajectory obtained using their recipe.

- Abstract: The year 2015 marks 80 years since Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen (EPR)  penned their letter arguing for the incompleteness of quantum mechanics, and in the process describing one of the most counter-intuitive characteristics of quantum mechanics, that distant measurements can influence the character of local quantum states. In reaction, and in the same year, Schrödinger  generalized their notion and introduced the term 'steering' to describe it. The EPR paper prompted a vigorous response from Bohr , and the debate eventually lead to the work of John Bell , which established quantitative methods for testing possible completions to quantum mechanics.
