A recently emerged research area where radiation pressure from light or microwave fields couples mechanical and optical degrees of freedom at the quantum level.
This research aims to create interfaces between light and electronics, through their common interaction with a mechanical element.
Vibrational modes of two-dimensional superﬂuid helium are the mechanical oscillators in this cavity-optomechanical system.
Quantum optical precision sensing techniques are translated to biological measurements, maximizing measurement precision and minimizing biological sample damage.
Silicon chip-integrated sensors are developed for applications ranging from precision room temperature magnetometry, to accelerometry and acoustic sensing.
