Power Insensitive Silicon Microring Resonators

Power Insensitive Silicon Microring Resonators Lian-Wee Luo, Gustavo S. Wiederhecker, Kyle Preston, and Michal Lipson We demonstrate power insensitive silicon microring resonators without the need for active feedback control. The passive control of the resonance is achieved by utilizing the compensation of two counteracting processes, free carrier dispersion blueshift and thermo-optic redshift. In the …

Synchronization of Micromechanical Oscillators Using Light

Synchronization of Micromechanical Oscillators Using Light Mian Zhang, Gustavo Wiederhecker, Sasikanth Manipatruni, Arthur Barnard, Paul McEuen, and Michal Lipson arXiv:1112.3636 Synchronization, the emergence of spontaneous order in coupled systems, is of fundamental importance in both physical and biological systems. We demonstrate the synchronization of two dissimilar silicon nitride micromechanical oscillators, that are spaced apart by …

Broadband Tuning of Optomechanical Cavities

Our paper “Broadband Tuning of Optomechanical Cavities” was published today in Optics Express, Vol. 19, Issue 3, pp. 2782-2790 (2011).

Research Positions Avaliable!

I am looking for highly motivated students to pursue research on the field of integrated photonics. The following topics are on my priority list: Nonlinear optics in nanoscale optical waveguides and cavities. Interaction of sound and light in optical microcavities, aka optomechanics. Projects will be assigned based on the student level, i.e. scientific iniciation, master …
