Special Issue on Brillouin Scattering and Optomechanics

A special issue of Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417). This special issue belongs to the section "Optics and Lasers".

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2017

The science of the interaction of sound and light, including acousto-optics, has recently witnessed the emergence of new topics and directions that lead to novel fundamental effects and applications. Optomechanical structures, including phoxonic crystals—also known as simultaneous photonic and phononic crystals—are presently being investigated in order to obtain very efficient interactions in tiny volumes. They allow for the control of phonons with photons, but also for ultimate sensing applications. Concurrently, opto-acoustical interactions in micro- and nanoscale optical resonantors, fibers, and waveguides are being seen in a new light thanks to new materials and structures, leading to a renewed view of Brillouin scattering.

This Special Issue of the journal Applied Sciences “Brillouin Scattering and Optomechanics” aims to cover recent advances in the science of the interaction of light and sound, including theoretical and experimental contributions. Please visit the journal website at Special Issue
