Abstract

We generate photonic bandgaps (PBGs) in dielectric slab waveguides by exciting their acoustic plate eigenmodes of submicron wavelength. We investigate the optical forbidden bands below the light line where the slab interfaces and index of refraction are periodically modulated by the acoustic fields. Results show that multiple scattering through the enhanced periodic acousto-optic (AO) interaction opens Bragg PBGs. A tunable bandgap width and transmittance are achieved. Transmitted optical waves are found to incur strong nonlinear modulation through AO interaction by a multiphonon exchange mechanism. The applications include tunable optomechanical and AO devices.

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1.

Schematic of the acoustically perturbed dielectric slab optical waveguide, where λa denotes the wavelength of the acoustic plate waves and d is the unperturbed slab thickness. Both the guided optical waves (k) and acoustic plate waves (ka) are assumed to propagate along the z direction.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Dispersion curves of the lowest three in-plane acoustic plate modes: the A0, S0, and A1 modes. The dashed line denotes the chosen acoustic frequency fa=7.31GHz excited in the Si slab waveguide of thickness d=500nm. The corresponding acoustic wavelengths are λa=2π/ka=640, 800, and 1905 nm.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

Total displacement fields (insets) of the three acoustic eigenmodes (a) A0 mode, (b) S0 mode, and (c) A1 mode, and their cross-sectional displacement components at the dashed lines in the insets. (d)–(f) Variations of the refractive indices ny (dashed curves) and nz (solid curves) caused by the three acoustic plate modes. (d) by the A0 mode at top surface y=d/2, (e) by the S0 mode at middle plane y=0, and (f) by the A1 mode at top surface y=d/2.

Fig. 4.

(a) Photonic band structure of TE and TM modes below the light cone without acoustic perturbation. The vertical dashed lines denote the first BZ boundaries corresponding to the lattice constants set up by the three acoustic plate modes of different wavelengths 640, 800, and 1905 nm. (b) Close views of the acoustically perturbed TE and TM optical bands near the first BZ boundary by the A0, S0, and A1 acoustic plate modes of 7.31 GHz.

Time varying PBG widths and gap-edge frequencies of the (a) TE and (b) TM modes as a function of phase of the S0 mode acoustic plate waves.

Fig. 6.
Fig. 6.

Optical transmission spectra of the (a) TE mode and (b) TM mode through the Si slab waveguide perturbed by the S0 mode acoustic wave train of N=100, 300, and 500. The acoustic perturbation results in transmission dips for the TE and TM modes around 70.9 and 95.7 THz, respectively. Shaded frequency ranges denote the PBGs in Fig. 4(b).

Fig. 7.
Fig. 7.

(a) Electric field distributions of the TE waves at midgap frequency in the Si slab waveguide with and without acoustic perturbation (S0 mode). (b) Attenuation of the electric field of the S0 mode perturbed TE waves along the propagation direction.
