Abstract

We demonstrate sideband-resolved Si3N4 optomechanical crystals supporting 105 quality factor optical modes at 980 nm, coupled to approximately 4 GHz frequency mechanical modes with quality factors of approximately 3000. Optomechanical electromagnetically induced transparency and absorption are observed at room temperature and in atmosphere with intracavity photon numbers of approximately 1.1 × 10^4.
