Abstract:

 

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.
