|Abstract:||The laser's invention, which produced a coherent light source, has accelerated the development of acousto-optic platforms (AlN, GaN, Quartz, LiNbO3) for many practical applications such as beam steering, signal processing, and intensity modulation. The recent integration of on-chip acousto-optic devices with photonic integrated circuits lead to many different acousto-optic devices such as efficient microwave converters, optical isolators, and wavelength scale acousto-optic frequency shifters, which were not realizable before. However, all of these devices target the 1550 nm optical wavelength or mid IR spectrum, and there is no integrated acousto-optic platform for visible wavelengths to the best of our knowledge. This thesis proposes that a LiNbO3 platform can produce a high acousto-optic coupling rate that can be used as a microwave to optical conversion. To have high coupling, we utilized LiNbO3's ultra-high electromechanical coupling for S0 lamb wave mode excitation. We employed LiNbO3's ultra-low optical loss as an interaction enhancement between light and sound for our resonator structures. Our results revealed that intra-band/inter-band optical scattering in LiNbO3 is strongly enhanced by its large piezoelectric, photoelastic, and electro-optic coefficients leading to efficient sideband generation.
