Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Here, we experimentally demonstrate Brillouin cooling in a linear waveguide for the first time. Leveraging the dispersive symmetry breaking of inter-modal Brillouin scattering, we achieve Brillouin cooling without an optical cavity or discrete acoustic modes.
