An abstract from authors Ivan Maksymov and Andrew Greentree from the CNBP RMIT Node, was presented by Ivan Maksymov as an oral contribution at the ‘Workshop on Optomechanics and Brillouin Scattering: Fundamentals, Applications and Technologies (WOMBAT)’, Wednesday 22 July 2015.
The talk, detailing the plasmon-enhanced Brillouin scattering effect and how it can be used in novel miniaturised intravascular imaging systems with increased resolution was very well received with questions from audience and a fruitful discussion during the coffee break.
The WOMBAT workshop brought together international expertise in the field of physics and applications of optoacoustic interactions, creating a bridge between classical and quantum aspects of optomechanics and Brillouin scattering. The invited speakers were Prof. K. Vahala (Calthech, USA), Prof. G. Bahl (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA), Prof. P. Ralich (Yale University, USA) and many others.
