New postdoctoral research position in our group on nonlinear optoacoustics and Brillouin scattering in nanoscale waveguides

Are you an expert in nonlinear optics or phononic/photonic devices? We have a new postdoctoral research fellowship available to work on the theory of the fascinating topic of nonlinear light-sound interactions in nanoscale waveguides, especially semiconductor waveguides. Click here for details on the position and to apply. Applications close July 31 2016.

New arxiv manuscript on a quantum treatment of stimulated Brillouin scattering in nanoscale waveguides

Here's a new piece of work that straddles both areas of current interest in the group: quantum nonlinear optics and opto-acoustics. In a new arxiv paper with long time collaborator John Sipe at the University of Toronto, we take another look at the derivation of equations of motion for the opto-acoustic interaction behind stimulated Brillouin scattering in waveguides. We attack the problem with the techniques of guided wave nonlinear quantum optics. By identifying the right Hamiltonian for the opto-acoustic coupling, the coupled mode equations fall out in a very neat fashion. This also opens the way for thinking about Brillouin interactions at the quantum-classical boundary.

New paper on the implications of acoustic dissipation for stimulated Brillouin scattering in waveguides

One of the things that makes the coupling between light and sound in waveguides complicated is the strong dissipation that phonons suffer. Most last only a few nanoseconds. In a new Scientific Reports paper (lead author Christian Wolff at UTS) we look at how the existence of phonon loss means the amplification of light by stimulate Brillouin scattering can be reduced considerably by the phonon lifetime. It's not a deal-breaker, but one needs to be aware of the issue.

New review paper on rigorous derivation of the coupled mode equations for nonlinear optoacoustics

We have a new (very long) paper out in Physical Review A (lead author Christian Wolff at UTS) that provides a rigorous derivation of the equations of motion for stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) in nanoscale waveguides. SBS is the nonlinear interaction between light and high frequency phonons (sound waves) and has tremendous promise as a basis for ultracompact devices for microwave photonics, sensing and narrow linewdith chip-based lasers.

This paper is a collaboration with the group of Alexander Szameit (Instite of Applied Optics, Jena, Germany) and provides a detailed survey of the use of laser written circuits for many quantum applications, especially those exploting 3D capabilities.

Our PhD student Qiang (Jocelyn) Liu has received her PhD for her thesis work on laser-written waveguides in magneto-optical glasses. Jocelyn's work brings us closer to a dedicated optical isolator for the laser written waveguide platform. Well done!

New arXiv manuscript on lossy biphotons

Lasers Our new manuscript (lead author Luke Helt) on the effect of loss on heralded pair generation by spontaneous parametric down-conversion is up on the arXiv. This work investigates how the loss modifies the generated biphoton state, sometimes for good!

New arXiv manuscript on SBS in nanoscale waveguides

Lasers Our new theory of Stimulated Brillouin Scattering (SBS) in nanoscale waveguides (lead author Christian Wollf at UTS) is up on the arXiv. Christian has found some really neat ways of teasing out the different forces involved in modern SBS systems.

Media coverage of our hybrid single photon source

Lasers The paper on our hybrid single photon source in Laser and Photonics Reviews has attracted a bit of media attention. Amongst others, we've been picked up by Scatterings in Optics and Photonics News and The Register, UK. Here's the original press release.

Three and four-way multiplexing in a hybrid integrated device.

Lasers In a major collaboration between Macquarie, the University of Sydney and Université Nice Sophia Antipolis (lead authors, we've shown active multiplexing of three and four single photon channels in a hybrid glass/lithium niobate device. We hope this is the future of single photon sources!
