We demonstrate broadband tuning of an optomechanical microcavity optical resonance by exploring the large optomechanical coupling of a double-wheel microcavity and its uniquely low mechanical stiffness. Using a pump laser with only 13 mW at telecom wavelengths we show tuning of the silicon nitride microcavity resonances over 32 nm. This corresponds to a tuning power efficiency of only 400 μW/nm. By choosing a relatively low optical Q resonance (≈18,000) we prevent the cavity from reaching thedoi:10.1364/oe.19.002782 pmid:21369099 fatcat:4kbuhcaenfgblpkudnaz7fligy
