Phonon Lasing (Wu, Heinrich, Marquardt 2013) - Phonon lasing is very efficient in a setup with two optical modes, e.g. a membrane in the middle of an optical cavity. The membrane spontaneously starts to oscillate mechanically, due to the (time-independent) laser drive. But Landau-Zener physics significantly changes the resulting attractor diagram. This is important for anyone trying to understand nonlinear dynamics in multimode optomechanical systems. |
Optomechanical metamaterials (Schmidt, Peano, Marquardt 2013) - Photonic crystals with many localized photonic and phononic modes could be used to form 'optomechanical arrays'. This paper predicts that engineering their optomechanical bandstructure gives access to many phenomena usually known in condensed matter: e.g. Dirac physics of photon-phonon polaritons on a honeycomb lattice (analogous to electrons in graphene) or optomechanical artificial magnetic fields for photons. |
Optomechanical synchronization (Bagheri et al 2013) - In this experiment of the Tang group at Yale, two 'distant' nanomechanical resonators are coupled via the optical field inside a racetrack optical cavity. Their oscillations are observed to synchronize, which had previously been demonstrated only for disk resonators almost touching each other. In addition, novel features like peculiar sidebands in the observed mechanical spectrum show up. These hint at dynamics beyond the most widely used models of synchronization. |
Where do the currents flow? (Kessler, Marquardt 2013) - In optical lattices, it is now experimentally possible to detect the precise location of single atoms. This paper suggests that this novel tool could also be used to take 'snapshots' of current patterns. These fluctuating patterns could reveal, via their statistics, important information about quantum many-body states of ultracold atoms, e.g. when an artificial magnetic field is applied. |
Signatures of quantum nonlinearities (Kronwald, Marquardt 2013) - Optomechanical experiments are not yet able to observe indications of the nonlinear quantum nature of the optomechanical interaction. However, experiments are coming closer to this "nonlinear quantum regime". In this work, we propose a way how first indications of this nonlinear quantum regime could be observed in a two-tone driving experiment using near-future optomechanical devices. |
Shuttling electrons, one by one (Moeckel et al. 2013) - Nanomechanical electron shuttles are little metallic islands that vibrate between electrodes, carrying electrons from one electrode to the other. In principle, they could be exploited to produce a precise current standard, essentially by counting the number of electrons. However, keeping track of the count is not so easy. In this paper, it is shown that the nonlinear dynamics of such a shuttle permits a trick: synchronization of self-oscillations to an external drive. This could drastically increase the precision. |
Dissipative mechanical squeezing (Kronwald, Marquardt, Clerk 2013) - Quantum squeezed states are of interest for a variety of applications. In this paper, a remarkably simple (yet powerful) scheme to generate an arbitrarily squeezed mechanical state is discussed: The two-tone driven cavity acts as an engineered reservoir cooling the mechanics into an arbitrarily squeezed state. It can also be viewed as a coherent feedback process, showing that coherent feedback schemes and reservoir engineering are closely related. |
Quench dynamics quantum simulator (Viehmann, v. Delft, Marquardt 2013) - "Quenches" are situations when systems are suddenly brought out of equilibrium, e.g. by suddenly changing a parameter in the Hamiltonian. Studying their subsequent dynamics leads to many interesting unresolved problems in modern many-body physics. This paper shows how the important "transverse Ising model" could be implemented as a chain of many superconducting qubits, to study these questions. |
