A “milestone” work in the study of photons by a member of CTAMOP

Last updated May 29, 2017 by Andrew Brown

In a recent Milestones special issue, the Editors of Nature Publishing Group have valued the seminal paper on cavity optomechanics written by Dr. Mauro Paternostro in collaboration with researchers at Universitaet Vienna, University of Maryland and Johannes Kepler University Linz [S. Gigan et al. Nature 444, 67 (2006)] as the most recent milestone in the study of photons since the formalisation of Maxwell’s equations in 1861.
