Microscale resonators that simultaneously exhibit high-Q optical and mechanical resonances are routinely used to study the coupling between light and vibration. We have learned recently that Brillouin scattering (traveling-wave light-sound interactions) within simple dielectric whispering-gallery resonators can enable nonreciprocal optical transmission through a waveguide, which can be reconfigured optically and on demand. In this talk, we describe the basic theory and experimental demonstrations of Brillouin Optomechanics, and describe how it allows the breaking of time-reversal symmetry by means of traveling phonon modes. We experimentally demonstrate ultra-low loss optical isolation using a simple resonator system. Our results demonstrate that chip-scale optical isolation is much more accessible than previously thought. (invited by Prof. Xudong Fan)
