Abstract
We show theoretically that a directional dipole wave can be perfectly reflected by a single pointlike oscillating dipole. Furthermore, we find that, in the case of a strongly focused plane wave, up to 85% of the incident light can be reflected by the dipole. Our results hold for the full spectrum of the electromagnetic interactions and have immediate implications for achieving strong coupling between a single propagating photon and a single quantum emitter.
