Abstract

Photonic-bandgap fibers have had major impact from fundamental studies of photon–atom interactions to new applications in nonlinear optics. While much is known about the optical properties of these fibers, relatively little is known about their optomechanical properties. Here we identify a new form of optomechanical coupling in gas-filled hollow-core fibers. We show that forward Brillouin scattering is produced by air in the core of a photonic bandgap fiber. A single Brillouin resonance is identified at 35 MHz, which corresponds to a guided sound wave within the center of an air-filled hollow-core fiber. A simple analytical model, refined by numerical simulations, is developed that accurately predicts the Brillouin coupling strength and frequency from the gas and fiber parameters, revealing that this optomechanical interaction is highly tailorable. This new mechanism could become the basis for new types of sensing and spectroscopy. Moreover, this previously unknown nonlinearity within hollow core fibers represents a power and noise limitation that requires further consideration.

We limit consideration to gases that do not exhibit optical activity. Under certain circumstances, however, it may be possible for optically active molecular gases (e.g., chiral gases) to modify the polarization state of light.

Figures (5)

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1.

(a) Hollow-core fiber cross section with the vibrating air in the core represented in the inset, (b) mode profiles in the fiber core and forward Brillouin scattering frequencies of interest, indicated as inputs and outputs, (c) single-mode optical dispersion curve with the pump (ωp) and Stokes (ωs) frequencies indicated, (d) the acoustic mode dispersion curves, and (e) energy-level diagram of the Stokes transition. The common green arrow represents the acoustic four-vector that satisfies phase matching, where K is the wavevector projection.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Calculated forward Brillouin gain with the magnitude of the acoustic displacement field plotted by the respective gain peak. Inset: Gaussian electric field and resultant electrostrictive force distribution. Calculations assume an inner diameter of 5.65 μm, Q=8.75, λ=1550  nm, n=1.0003 for air, the air density is 1.2754  kg/m3, and the pressure-wave speed is 343  m/s.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

(a) Hollow-core fiber with input and output fields indicated and (b) energy-level diagram for the phonon-mediated four-wave mixing process described in this work (both inter- and intra-polarized versions). Each frequency is indicated with a number and a polarization in parentheses. Note that the energy-level diagram represents one specific anti-Stokes interaction; the corresponding Stokes process occurs simultaneously.

Fig. 4.
Fig. 4.

Forward Brillouin gain measurement for (a) intra-polarization and (b) inter-polarization scattering (solid black line) along with the theoretical prediction for air coupling, neglecting Kerr nonlinearity and the narrow resonances from the elastic modes in the silica (dashed red line). The acoustic signature is absent from the inter-polarization measurement, as expected for acousto-optic coupling with gases.

Fig. 5.
Fig. 5.

Numerical simulations of the (a) near-field intensity profile of the fundamental optical mode and the (b) first excited axial–radial acoustic mode of the air in the core of the hollow-core fiber.
