New Frontiers In Nonlinear Optics: Harnessing Photon-Phonon Interactions In Nanoscale Integrated Circuits
Speaker: Prof. Benjamin Eggleton, ARC Laureate Fellow, School of Physics, University of Sydney / Centre for Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS)
Time: Thursday April 20, 2017 @ 2:00 pm
Location: AMPEL 311
One of the surprises of nonlinear optics – the field of optics with high intensity lasers – is that light may interact strongly with sound, the most mundane of mechanical vibrations. Intense laser light literally “shakes” the glass in optical fibres, exciting acoustic waves (sound) in the fibre. Under the right conditions, it leads to...
