Abstract

Periodically structured materials can sustain both optical and mechanical excitations which are tailored by the geometry. Here we analyze the properties of dispersively coupled planar photonic and phononic crystals: optomechanical crystals. In particular, the properties of co-resonant optical and mechanical cavities in quasi-1D (patterned nanobeam) and quasi-2D (patterned membrane) geometries are studied. It is shown that the mechanical Q and optomechanical coupling in these structures can vary by many orders of magnitude with modest changes in geometry. An intuitive picture is developed based upon a perturbation theory for shifting material boundaries that allows the optomechanical properties to be designed and optimized. Several designs are presented with mechanical frequency ~1–10 GHz, optical Q-factor Qo>107, motional masses m eff≈100 femtograms, optomechanical coupling length L OM<5 µm, and clampinig losses that are exponentially suppressed with increasing number of phononic crystal periods (radiation-limited mechanical Q-factor Qm>107 for total device size less than 30 µm).

(a) General geometry of the periodic nanobeam structure’s projection (infinite structure, no defect). (b) Optical band diagram of the nanobeam’s projection. The band from which all localized optical modes will be derived is shown in dark black, with Ey of the optical mode at the X point shown to the right of the diagram. The harmonic spatial potential created by the defect, along with the first three optical modes are shown as emanating from the X-point band-edge. (c) Mechanical band diagram of the nanobeam’s projection. The three bands that can form optomechanically coupled mechanical defect modes are colored. The bottom-most mode is from the X point of the red band; the Γ points of the green and blue bands correspond to the middle and top mechanical modes, respectively. The frequencies of the defect modes that form from the band edges are shown as short, horizontal bars.

Fig. 2.

Mechanical band diagram and corresponding normalized displacement profiles of the unit cell at the Γ (kx =0) and X (kx =π/Λ) points. In the band diagram, the mirror symmetry σ z , (across the plane defined by z=0) is indicated by color: red corresponds to even vector parity (pz =1) and blue to odd vector parity (pz =-1). Mirror symmetry σ y (across the plane defined by y=0) plane is indicated by the line shape: solid corresponds to even vector parity (py =1) and dashed to odd vector parity (py =-1). The mechanical mode profiles are all viewed from a direction normal to the z=0 plane unless labeled “yz”, in which case the viewing angle is normal to the x=0 plane. The pinch, accordion, and breathing mode bands are b, i, and j, respectively. As torsional modes can be difficult to interpret without isometric views, it is noted for the reader that the mechanical modes for band e at X, band f at Γ, and band h at X are all torsional mechanical modes.

(a) Schematic illustration of actual nanobeam optomechanical crystal with defect and clamps at substrate. (b) Localized optical modes of the nanobeam OMC. The colors of the names correspond to the illustration of the inverted potential in Fig. 1(b). Localized, optomechanically-coupled mechanical modes of the nanobeam OMC. The colors of the names correspond to the colored bands and horizontal bars showing the modal frequencies in Fig. 1(c).

(a) In-phase and (b) in-quadrature mechanical displacement field (log10(|q|2/max(|q|2)) of the fundamental breathing mode of nanobeam OMC structure with weakly absorbing “pad”, showing the propagating nature of the radiated mechanical waves in the pad region. (c) Dependence of Q m on the total length of the structure; the number of mirror holes on each side is (NT -15)/2. This shows the oscillatory Q m of the pinch and breathing modes, which are coupled to waveguide modes, and the exponentially-increasing Q m of the accordion mode. (d) Mechanical band structure of the nanobeam OMC, with arrow tails indicating the frequency and high-symmetry point of the breathing (blue) and pinch (red) modes, and arrow heads indicating the equi-frequency waveguide mode that acts as the dominant source of parasitic coupling. The effective bandgap of the accordion mode is shown in transparent green, with its frequency indicated as a horizontal green bar at the Γ point.

For the fundamental breathing mode and the fundamental optical mode in the nominal structure, (a) FEM simulation of individual unit cell contributions to the total optomechanical coupling (each point computed by integrating ζOM (Equation 8) over the respective unit cell), (b) surface plot of the optomechanical coupling density, ζOM. (c) surface plot of the normal displacement profile, Θm (Equation 10), (d) surface plot of the electromagnetic energy functional, Θo (Equation 11). In (d), there is significant optomechanical coupling density in the corner of the holes, where the crossbar meets the rail. Without the fillets, the field amplitude is concentrated in the corner and difficult to see. For this reason, the corners have been filleted to allow the optomechanical coupling density in the corners to be visualized. The fillets do not significantly affecting the optomechanical coupling (confirmed by simulation).

For the accordion mode with the fundamental optical mode, (a), the effective length as a function of total beam width, (b), individual unit cell contributions to the total optomechanical coupling for a structure with a beam width of 700 nm (circled in (a)), mode frequency of 3.97 GHz and effective motional mass of 334 fg, with accompanying mechanical mode plot.
