Nonlinear nanophotonics circuits: building blocks for optical frequency synthesis, filtering and signal processing


The recent development of active and passive photonic components has revolutionized spectroscopy techniques, compact sources of light of high coherence, data transmission and even redefined the optical computing paradigm. In this proposal we aim to explore the collective and multimodal behavior that appears in optical microcavities as a consequence of nonlinear effects of electronic and mechanical origin. These non-linear processes will be explored for a new generation of nano-photonic devices whose applications range from spectroscopy techniques to the creation of fundamental blocks to solve specialized computing problems -- such as generation of genuinely random number sequences and optimization.
