Nanomechanical resonators for quantum optomechanics and precision metrology
Time: 10:00 am
Place: 5310 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Robinjeet Singh , Joint Quantum Institute NIST (Gaithersburg) and the University of Maryland
Abstract: Nanomechanical resonators serve as excellent candidates for high precision sensing and transduction, owing to their high mechanical quality factor. Applications include coherent frequency conversion for quantum networks, measurement below the Standard Quantum Limit, and precision metrology for quantities such as temperature and pressure. Our work focuses on designing, fabricating, and optically probing nanomechanical resonators made out of various insulator and semiconductor materials for applications including quantum metrology and force sensing, optical trapping of mechanical states, and efficient electro-optic transduction of information with potential application in superconducting quantum computing.
