16 September 2009 ICFO on APL’s cover

Cover picture

Work by the group led by
Prof. Valerio Pruneri in the
cover of Applied Physics Letters.
A picture on surface acoustic wave generation in ZX-cut LiNbO3 superlattices using coplanar electrodes makes the cover of the 3rd August issue of Applied Physics Letter. The image is related to an item published in the same magazine by ICFO PhD student Didit Yudistira, French CNRS scientist Sarah Benchabane, ICFO Post-doc Davide Janner, and ICFO Prof. Valerio Pruneri. The article reports on an innovative configuration to generate surface acoustic waves (SAWs) in acoustic superlattices based on ZX-cut periodically poled lithium niobate.
