TAILPHOX

Tailoring photon-phonon interaction in silicon Phoxonic crystals


Acronym: TAILPHOX
Project type: European
Period: 01-05-2009 / 30-10-2012
Reference: FP7-ICT-233883
Coordinator: UNIVERSIDAD POLITECNICA DE VALENCIA
Web: www.tailphox.org
Research lines involved: Plasmonic metamaterials


Project description:
TAILPHOX project addresses the design and implementation of Silicon phoXonic crystal structures that allow a simultaneous control of both photonic and phononic waves. The final goal is to push the performance of optical devices well beyond the state of the art by this radically new approach. By merging both fields (nanophotonics and nanophononics) within a same platform, novel unprecedented control of light and sound in very small regions will be achieved.
