Abstract: X29.00011 : Study of coherent microwave-to-optical transduction using on-chip rare-earth ion devices*
10:00 AM–10:12 AM
We will present the fabrication and characterization of on-chip REI devices based on 171Yb-doped yttrium orthovanadate (171Yb:YVO4). The devices combine nanophotonic waveguides or cavities with planar microwave waveguides. Waveguides allow spectroscopic measurements of the optical and spin transitions over broad frequency ranges facilitating studies in a variety of applied magnetic fields. We will report on the potential of this architecture for microwave to optical transduction, including its performance at zero-magnetic field, and suggest avenues for increasing the transduction efficiency.
