Paper Title:
Light-Driven Acoustic Band Gap Based on Metal Nanospheres
  Abstract

In this paper, light-driven acoustic band gap is presented by considering two metal nanospheres illuminated simultaneously by laser and acoustic waves. The interaction between the photonics and phonons is investigated through optical distribution force, van der Waals distribution force, and acoustic pressure upon these nanospheres. Based on the optical force and van der Waals force, the acoustic form functions for the metal nanoaggregates with different optical intensity are calculated, and the light-driven acoustics band gap at low frequency band has been found. It is shown that the band gap width can be widened with increasing the incident laser intensity, or by using proper metal materials and background media. This could provide potential applications in optical nanoswitches and acoustical filters.
