Optomechanical lasing and domain walls driven by exciton-phonon interactions

  title={Optomechanical lasing and domain walls driven by exciton-phonon interactions},
  author={A. V. Yulin and Alexander V. Poshakinskiy and Alexander N. Poddubny},
We study theoretically interaction of optically-pumped excitons with acoustic waves in planar semiconductor nanostructures in the strongly nonlinear regime. We start with the multimode optomechanical lasing regime for optical pump frequency above the exciton resonance and demonstrate broadband chaotic-like lasing spectra. We also predict formation of propagating optomechanical domain walls driven by optomechanical nonlinearity for the optical pump below the exciton resonance. Stability… Expand


Optomechanical amplification driven by interference of phonon-exciton and phonon-photon couplings
We study theoretically optomechanical damping and amplification spectra for vibrations interacting with excitonic polaritons in a zero-dimensional microcavity. We demonstrate, that the spectraExpand
Polariton Resonances for Ultrastrong Coupling Cavity Optomechanics in GaAs/AlAs Multiple Quantum Wells.
Polariton-mediated light-sound interaction is investigated through resonant Brillouin scattering experiments in GaAs/AlAs multiple-quantum wells. Photoelastic coupling enhancement atExpand
The effect of Landau–Zener dynamics on phonon lasing
Optomechanical systems couple light to the motion of nanomechanical objects. Intriguing new effects are observed in recent experiments that involve the dynamics of more than one optical mode. There,Expand
Resonant excitation of acoustic waves in one-dimensional exciton-polariton systems
We analyze the interaction of exciton-polariton condensates in a 1D semiconductor microcavity with acoustic phonons. We consider the case of a coherently pumped condensate and demonstrate that uponExpand

These experiments constitute the first demonstration of coherent cavity optomechanical phenomena with exciton polaritons, paving the way for new hybrid designs for quantum technologies, phonon lasers, and phonon-photon bidirectional translators. Expand
Solitons in optomechanical arrays.
It is shown that optical solitons can be obtained with a one-dimensional optomechanical array that consists of a chain of periodically spaced identical optomechical systems, namely, phonon-photon interaction. Expand

Photoelastic coupling in gallium arsenide optomechanical disk resonators.
Photoelastic optomechanical coupling is shown to be a predominant coupling mechanism for certain disk dimensions and mechanical modes, leading to total coupling gom and g(0) reaching respectively 3 THz/nm and 4 MHz. Expand
Strong coupling and long-range collective interactions in optomechanical arrays.
We investigate the collective optomechanics of an ensemble of scatterers inside a Fabry-Pérot resonator and identify an optimized configuration where the ensemble is transmissive, in contrast to theExpand
