Suspended mid-IR waveguides for SBS in “Optics Express”

website_suspendedOur manuscript on novel design of mid-IR silicon waveguides for Brillouin scattering was just published in Optics Express (open access)! In this work we merge ideas from linear physics of mid-IR waveguides developed in the research groups of our co-authors – Profs. Goran Mashanovich and Graham Reed from The University of Southampton (click here for one of their reports), with the some phonon bandgap engineering to design novel waveguides operating in mid-IR (which is hard and attractive!), and exhibiting strong SBS gain.

I’m off to visit Southampton in a month, to figure out where to take this work next!
