Title: Self-excited oscillation and synchronization of an on-fiber optomechanical cavity

Abstract

Here, we study a fully on-fiber optomechanical cavity and characterize its performance as a sensor. The cavity is formed by patterning a suspended metallic mirror near the tip of an optical fiber and by introducing a static reflector inside the fiber. Optically induced self-excited oscillation (SEO) is observed above a threshold value of the injected laser power. The SEO phase can be synchronized by periodically modulating the optical power that is injected into the cavity. Noise properties of the system in the region of synchronization are explored. Furthermore, the spectrum is measured near different values of the modulation frequency, at which phase locking occurs. A universal behavior is revealed in the transition between the regions of phase locked and free running SEO.
