Temporal superoscillation of sub-terahertz coherent acoustic phonons (2020)
Journal Article
Brehm, S., Akimov, A. .., Campion, R. P., & Kent, A. J. (2020). Temporal superoscillation of sub-terahertz coherent acoustic phonons. Physical Review Research, 2(2), https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevResearch.2.023009

We observe coherent acoustic phonon superoscillations at sub-terahertz frequencies. The superoscillations result from the interference of optically excited coherent longitudinal acoustic phonon modes in a GaAs/AlGaAs superlattice. The superoscillatio...

Theory and numerical modelling of parity-time symmetric structures in photonics: boundary integral equation for coupled microresonator structures (2017)
Book Chapter
Phang, S., Vukovic, A., Gradoni, G., Sewell, P., Benson, T. M., & Creagh, S. C. (2017). Theory and numerical modelling of parity-time symmetric structures in photonics: boundary integral equation for coupled microresonator structures. In Recent Trends in Computational Photonics. Springer Nature

The spectral behaviour and the real-time operation of Parity-Time (PT) symmetric coupled resonators are investigated. A Boundary Integral Equation (BIE) model is developed to study these structures in the frequency domain. The impact of realistic gai...

Localized single frequency lasing states in a finite parity-time symmetric resonator chain (2016)
Journal Article
Phang, S., Vukovic, A., Creagh, S. C., Sewell, P., Gradoni, G., & Benson, T. M. (2016). Localized single frequency lasing states in a finite parity-time symmetric resonator chain. Scientific Reports, 6, https://doi.org/10.1038/srep20499

In this paper a practical case of a finite periodic Parity Time chain made of resonant dielectric cylinders is considered. The paper analyzes a more general case where PT symmetry is achieved by modulating both the real and imaginary part of the mate...

Parity-time symmetric coupled microresonators with a dispersive gain/loss (2015)
Journal Article
Phang, S., Vukovic, A., Creagh, S. C., Benson, T. M., Sewell, P. D., & Gradoni, G. (2015). Parity-time symmetric coupled microresonators with a dispersive gain/loss. Optics Express, 23(9), 11493-11507. https://doi.org/10.1364/oe.23.011493

The paper reports on the coupling of Parity-Time (PT)-symmetric whispering gallery resonators with realistic material and gain/loss models. Response of the PT system is analyzed for the case of low and high material and gain dispersion, and also for...

A versatile all-optical parity-time signal processing device using a Bragg grating induced using positive and negative Kerr-nonlinearity (2015)
Journal Article
Phang, S., Vukovic, A., Benson, T. M., Susanto, H., & Sewell, P. (2015). A versatile all-optical parity-time signal processing device using a Bragg grating induced using positive and negative Kerr-nonlinearity. Optical and Quantum Electronics, 47(1), https://doi.org/10.1007/s11082-014-0012-2

The properties of gratings with Kerr nonlinearity and PT symmetry are investigated in this paper. The impact of the gain and loss saturation on the response of the grating is analysed for different input intensities and gain/loss parameters. Potentia...
