New paper on GaAs optomechanics just published in Optical Materials Express. Congratulations Rodrigo!

A method to fabricate GaAs microcavities using only a soft mask with an electrolithographic pattern in an inductively coupled plasma etching is presented. A careful characterization of the fabrication process pinpointing the main routes for a smooth device sidewall is discussed. Using the final recipe, optomechanical microdisk resonators are fabricated. The results show very high …

Brillouin optomechanics tutorial is out!

Brillouin optomechanics in nanophotonic structure APL Photonics 4, 071101 (2019);   This tutorial guides and motivates scientists delving into the core of light-sound interaction. Through tangible examples, we lay out key concepts underneath accurate prediction of Brillouin gain in optomechanical structures. We have also published a data set at Zenodo repository with all the …

Great research visit from Prof. Michael Menard!

It was great to host Prof. Michäel Menard for the past few months at Unicamp through his sabbatical leave! Can’t believe three months have already gone and its time for him to go back .  The picture shows that we can’t only leave of  science!

Mario got a job in a Bay area (San Francisco) startup that is running on Stealth mode, congrats!

Check out media highlight from Mario’s Nature Communications paper!

Lais poster upgraded to E-poster at CLEO 2018!

Welcome David!

David Bellec, an undergraduate student from L’Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Ingénieurs de Caen (ENSICAEN) in France, joined us for an internship. He will be working together with Marvyn, Lais, and Louise to improve our group velocity dispersion measurement setup.
