  • Silicon photonics has offered a versatile platform for the recent development of integrated optomechanical circuits. However, silicon is limited to wavelengths above 1.1µm and does not allow device operation in the visible spectrum range where low-noise lasers are conveniently available. The narrow bandgap of silicon also makes silicon optomechanical devices susceptible to strong two-photon absorption and free carrier absorption, which often introduce strong thermal effects that limit the… CONTINUE READING
