Light dispersion in an unstructured (dashed line) and in an one-dimensional PBG structure. The arrows indicate a direct (a) and an umklapp (b) scattering process induced by a SAW with wave vector , which can be employed for frequency-tunable light filter.
Dielectric constant (solid line) and dielectric modulation by an acoustic wave (dashed line) in a one-dimension PBG structure consisting of a cavity inserted in-between asymmetric Bragg mirrors.
Definitions of transmission and reflection coefficients.
Calculated transmission coefficient for the structure given in Fig. 1 in the absence of a SAW. The sharp line at corresponds to the cavity resonance.
Calculated transmission coefficient near for the structure given in Fig. 2 with (solid symbols) and without a SAW (open symbols). The wavelength scale is in the vicinity of the cavity resonance displayed in Fig. 4. The dotted line shows the contrast ratio CR.
Expected contrast ratio of the optical switch as a function the dielectric modulation
One-dimensional cavity structure modulated by a SAW.
Proposed two-dimensional PBG structure based on semiconductors.
Calculated reflection coefficient near the resonance wavelength of for the structure given in Fig. 8 in the absence of a SAW (solid line) and under a SAW with wavelength of for the unshifted [, dashed line] and for the up-shifted [, dotted line] modes.
