Abstract

This paper is concerned with topology optimization of a coupled optical and mechanical wave propagation problem in photonic crystals. It is motivated by the potential gain in functionality of optical devices where mechanical Rayleigh waves (travelling in the surface of the material) play a leading role. The practical applications cover novel optical modulators, switches and frequency shifters. The work uses COMSOL Multiphysics which is a modern and finite element based modelling language.
