WOMBAT - Overview

20 - 22 July 2015

Aim and scope

This workshop will bring together international expertise in the field of physics and applications of optoacoustic interactions, creating a bridge between classical and quantum aspects of optomechanics and Brillouin scattering.

The event will:

  • Introduce the physics of optomechanics and Brillouin scattering, from early theory to recent experiments;
  • Cover the current state of the art;
  • Discuss important applications within the field of photonics;
  • Consider future important directions in optomechanics and Brillouin scattering.


This three day workshop will be held from 20th to 22nd of July 2015 in Sydney, with the first day being educatory tutorials followed by technical sessions on the second and third days.


A preliminary program is now online.
