On January 30, I started my two-year contract at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, in the group of Michael Steel, collaboration with researchers from UTS (University of Technology Sydney) led by Christopher Poulton and from University of Sydney (group of Ben Eggleton).
The exact focus of my project isn’t well defined yet, as we are trying to work out where our research interests and goals overlap. Nevertheless, it seems like I will attempt to apply my (limited) experience in cavity optomechanics to look into the newly developed quantum-mechanical description of SBS – Stimulated Brillouin Scattering in dielectric waveguides. I will soon update the project website and include links to the relevant papers.
I will also be working on applying the classical framework and solving real-life problems (sic!) with the software developed by researchers from UTS and USydney – NumBAT.
Pictures, photos, papers (hopefully!) and blog entries will come soon!
