Quantum squeezing and entanglement in microwave optomechanical systems

  • Ockeloen-Korppi, Caspar (Principal investigator)

Project Details


Micromechanical resonators coupled to optical or microwave fields provide a tool to demonstrate quantum behavior in macroscopic systems. The most intriguing quantum behavior is entanglement between remote objects. In this project, I propose to experimentally study quantum behavior of mechanical motion, using micro-electro-mechanical systems at cryogenic temperatures. I aim to create and demonstrate entanglement between two distinct mechanical oscillators; demonstrate optomechanical low-noise, tunable microwave amplifiers and develop a new optomechanical platform.
