Wide Band Gap Phononic Crystals Anonymous | 4.2.2009 | Defined Project (updated on 5.1.2012) | Print Preview
Controlling the flow of phonons can lead to many interesting applications and basic scientific dscoveries. Integrated management of acoustic, heat and electromagnetic waves may have significant impact on novel devices employing phonon-photon interactions. Some of the potential applications include thermal management, compact wireless and sensing devices and phasers. In this project we design, fabricate and test phononic bandgap structures. We employ Brillouin light scattering in our measurements typically at GHz phononic ranges.
