Paper Abstract

A new class of nano-optomechanical systems based on a hybrid plasmonic waveguide device built on a silicon photonic platform is proposed and experimentally investigated. Theoretical analysis and numerical modeling reveals that, due to the ability of sub-wavelength field localization, these hybrid plasmonic devices could enhance the optical forces by more than one order of magnitude compared with the force generated in all-dielectric devices.
