We study the feasibility of applying Acoustic Bragg Reflectors (ABRs) to an opto-mechanical resonator system using COMSOL Multiphysics to model the losses, focusing on the impact of integration of optical and acoustic components on device performance. Our analysis suggests negligible impact of this integration and holds promise for a practical realization of our proposed design with all-unreleased resonators.
