Micro-Optomechanical Oscillators

This talk will describe recent progress on optomechanical oscillators that take energy from a laser input to drive an optomechanical positive feedback loop, leading to self-sustained oscillation. Our optomechanical oscillators have recently achieved best in class phase noise performance that is now sufficient for use in the target chip-scale atomic clock (CSAC) application.
