Macroscopic direct observation of optical spin-dependent lateral forces and left-handed torques, Published online: 02 July 2018; doi:10.1038/s41566-018-0200-x

The observation of spin-dependent lateral displacements of anisotropic and inhomogeneous media with the naked eye is reported, allowing structured light–matter interaction to move from a scientific curiosity to a new asset for the optical manipulation toolbox.
