Single-polariton optomechanics

publié le , mis à jour le

A theoretical work by J. Restrepo, C. Ciuti and I. Favero predicts the behavior of a hybrid quantum system
consisting of a cavity with a movable mirror and an (artificial) two-level atom inside.
The paper predicts the cooling and amplification of the mirror motion via radiation pressure by single dressed photons (polaritons) and the peculiar
quantum statistics of the mechanical vibrations in these novel regimes.
