High frequency acoustics in colloid-based meso- and nanostructures by spontaneous Brillouin light scattering

The present thesis deals with the exploration of phononic properties of meso- and nanostructured colloid-based composite materials at hypersonic (GHz) frequencies. The emerging field of phononics, the mechanical analogue of photonics, treats the propagation and manipulation of acoustic waves in stru...
