Abstract

We propose an optomechanical approach for dispersion dynamic tuning and microengineering by taking advantage of the optical force in nano-optomechanical structures. Simulations of a suspended coupled silicon waveguide show that the zero-dispersion wavelength can be tuned by 40 nm by an optical pump power of 3 mW. Our approach exhibits great potential for broad applications in dispersion-sensitive processes, which not only offers a new root toward versatile tunable nonlinear photonics but may also open up a great avenue toward a new regime of nonlinear dynamics coupling between nonlinear optical and optomechanical effects.
