Frontiers in Optics + Laser Science 2018
I was honoured to present a Rapid Fire talk and poster at the OSA Frontiers in Optics + Laser Science conference 2018 in Washington DC last week.
My poster is titled: Optomechanics Outside the Lab: Prototyping and Field-testing a Whispering Gallery Mode Accelerometer
The abstract is: The dispersive and dissipative optomechanical coupling between a whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonance and the motion of the WGM cavity is used to measure acceleration. We describe the prototype assembly and results from the outdoor field-trials.
I was finally able to discuss the use of this device as an all-optical inertial measurement unit plus additional timing capabilities by using the frequency comb generated by the whisperiing gallery mode.
