Photonic MEMS at X-band rates (11 GHz)

Tal Carmon, Matthew Tomes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


We experimentally observe an opto-mechanical whispering-gallery [WG] resonator vibrating at 11 GHz. We use optical electrostriction to drive mechanical vibration at frequencies which scale inversely with optical wavelength, irrespective of micro-resonator size.
