Quantum experiments with mechanical motion of solids
Welcome to Göteborg
Mesoscopic Lecture / Manne Siegbahn
Lecture with Cindy Regal, JILA, University of Colorado, Boulder.
Over the last decades, quantum effects in
vibrations of micromechanical resonators have been observed in a surprising
range of experiments. Achieving the quantum regime with tangible motion
of solid objects has both piqued the curiosity of physicists, and enabled new
approaches to difficult tasks in manipulating quantum information. I will
present experiments in our group that measure the motion of micromachined
drums, and discuss how they evolved from a rich history of read-out and control
in quantum optics and precision measurement. I will highlight our current
efforts to use mechanical motion as a link between quantum states in disparate
parts of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Cindy Regal will be available for Zoom
meetings/discussions with smaller groups at Chalmers, October 30, at 16-18. If

The Göteborg Mesoscopic Lectures and
the Manne Siegbahn Lecture are sponsored by the Royal Swedish Academy of
Sciences through its Nobel Institute of Physics.
