Abstract

We investigate the change in width of transparency windows and the amplification of the probe output spectra in an optomechanical system with multiple mechanical resonators. Each mechanical resonator is driven by a mechanical driving field, and the phases of these mechanical driving fields are different. Via exhibiting the probe output spectra of the system, we find that the number of transparency windows is explicitly decided by the number of mechanical resonators with different frequencies. Meanwhile, we discuss the effect of cavity decay rate on the width of the transparency windows. Moreover, we also investigate the absorption and amplification phenomena with the different phase differences among the pump field, probe field, and mechanical driving fields. By adjusting the phase differences, the fast–slow light transitions can occur. These interesting phenomena can also be exploited to investigate the optical switch and frequency comb generation.
