sub optical Wavelength Acoustic wave modulation of integrated photonic resonators at microwave frequencies
Nature Communications, 2014CoAuthors: Semere A TadesseAbstract:Lightsound interactions have long been exploited in various acoustooptic devices based on bulk crystalline materials. Conventionally, these devices operate in megahertz frequency range where the Acoustic Wavelength is much longer than the optical Wavelength and a long interaction length is required to attain significant coupling. With nanoscale transducers, Acoustic waves with suboptical Wavelengths can now be excited to induce strong acoustooptic coupling in nanophotonic devices. Here we demonstrate microwave frequency surface Acoustic wave transducers cointegrated with nanophotonic resonators on piezoelectric aluminum nitride substrates. Acoustooptic modulation of the resonance modes at above 10 GHz with the Acoustic Wavelength significantly below the optical Wavelength is achieved. The phase and modal matching conditions in this scheme are investigated for efficient modulation. The new acoustooptic platform can lead to novel optical devices based on nonlinear Brillouin processes and provides a direct, wideband link between optical and microwave photons for microwave photonics and quantum optomechanics.

Acoustooptic modulators use Acoustic waves to control light on a chip. Here, the authors achieve modulation in nanophotonic resonators using microwave frequency surface Acoustic waves with Wavelength smaller than the optical Wavelength towards highly integrated devices on silicon.

mean force on a finite sized spherical particle due to an Acoustic field in a viscous compressible medium
Physical Review E, 2014CoAuthors: Subramanian Annamalai, S Balachandar, M ParmarAbstract:An analytical expression to evaluate the secondorder mean force (Acoustic radiation force) on a finitesized, rigid, spherical particle due to an Acoustic wave is presented. The medium in which the particle is situated is taken to be both viscous and compressible. A farfield derivation approach has been used in determining the force, which is a function of the particle size, Acoustic Wavelength, and viscous boundarylayer thickness. It is assumed that the viscous length scale is negligibly small compared to the Acoustic Wavelength. The force expression presented here (i) reduces to the correct inviscid behavior (for both small and finitesized particles) and (ii) is identical to recent viscous results [M. Settnes and H. Bruus, Phys. Rev. E 85, 016327 (2012)] for smallsized particles. Further, the computed force qualitatively matches the computational fluifluid dynamics (finiteelement) results [D. Foresti, M. Nabavi, and D. Poulikakos, J. Fluid Mech. 709, 581 (2012)] for finitesized particles. Additionally, the mean force is interpreted in terms of a multipole expansion. Subsequently, considering the fact that the force expansion is an infinite series, the number of terms that are required or adequate to capture the force to a specified accuracy is also provided as a function of the particle size to Acoustic Wavelength ratio. The dependence of the force on particle density, kinematic viscviscosity, and bulk viscosity of the fluid is also investigated. Here, both traveling and standing waves are considered.

Simple Acoustic multiplexer.
Physical Review E, 2005CoAuthors: Leonard Dobrzynski, Piotr Zieliński, Abdellatif Akjouj, B SyllaAbstract:Simple structures enabling the multiplexing of Acoustic waves are presented. Such structures are constructed out of two monomode Acoustic wires and two masses bound together, and to the wires by springs. We show analytically that these simple structures can transfer with selectivity and in one direction one Acoustic Wavelength from one wire to the other, leaving neighbor Acoustic Wavelengths unaffected. We give closedform relations enabling to obtain the values of the relevant physical parameters for this multiplexing phenomena to happen at a chosen Wavelength. Finally, we illustrate this general theory by an application.

Effect of object size and Acoustic Wavelength on pulsed ultrasound modulated fluorescence signals.
Journal of biomedical optics, 2012CoAuthors: Nam Huynh, Haowen Ruan, Barrie Hayesgill, Stephen P. MorganAbstract:Detection of ultrasound (US)modulated fluorescence in turbid media is a challenge because of the low level of fluorescent light and the weak modulation of incoherent light. A very limited number of theoretical and experimental investigations have been performed, and this is, to our knowledge, the first demonstration of pulsed USmodulated fluorescence tomography. Experimental results show that the detected signal depends on the Acoustic frequency and the fluorescent target’s size along the ultrasonic propagation axis. The modulation depth of the detected signal is greatest when the length of the object along the Acoustic axis is an odd number of half Wavelengths and is weakest when the object is an integer multiple of an Acoustic Wavelength. Images of a fluorescent tube embedded within a 22 by 13 by 30 mm scattering gel phantom (μ(s)∼15 cm(1), g=0.93) with 1, 1.5, and 2 MHz frequency US are presented. The modulation depth of the detected signal changes by a factor of 5 depending on the relative size of the object and the frequency. The approach is also verified by some simple experiments in a nonscattering gel and using a theoretical model.
