Interactions of light and sound waves in optical fibers and photonic integrated circuits
Title: Interactions of light and sound waves in optical fibers and photonic integrated circuits
Prof. Avi Zadok, Faculty of Engineering and Institute for Nano-Technology and Advanced Materials, Bar-Ilan University.
Abstract: The propagation of optical waves in media exerts forces that may stimulate the oscillations of acoustic waves. The acoustic wave, in turn, can scatter and modulate light. The interplay of the two wave phenomena has drawn the attention of researchers since the 1880's. Our group is studying light-and-sound interactions in standard optical fibers and in silicon-photonic integrated circuits. In this seminar, I will present some of our latest, yet unpublished results of the last year: Inter-polarization scattering in standard and polarization-maintaining fibers, optical stimulation of acoustic vortex beams, and integrated microwave-photonic filters with arbitrary transfer functions and few-MHz linewidths.
