Two postdeadline papers at Nonlinear Optics Conference

17-07-2015

Two University of Sydney CUDOS papers have been accepted in postdeadline sessions at the Nonlinear Optics Meeting in Hawaii.

"CMOS-compatible RF notch filter enabled by SBS in silicon,"
Alvaro Casas Bedoya, Blair Morrison, Mattia Pagani, David Marpaung, Benjamin J. Eggleton
Abstract:
We present the first functional signal processing device based on stimulated Brillouin scattering from a silicon nanowire. We use only 0.98dB SBS gain to create a tunable RF notch filter with an ultrahigh 48dB suppression.

"Ultracompact quantum splitter of degenerate photon pairs,"
Bryn Bell, Jiakun He, Alvaro Casas-Bedoya, Young Zhang, Alex Clark, Chunle Xiong, Benjamin J. Eggleton
Abstract:
We generate and deterministically split degenerate photon pairs with an on-chip silicon Sagnac loop for the first time. A Hong-Ou-Mandel dip with 94% visibility verifies the deterministic splitting.
