Successful research on mesoscopic quantumness at CTAMOP

Last updated May 29, 2017 by Andrew Brown

A significant research output has been achieved by the Quantum Technology group at CTAMOP. A new scheme to engineer genuinely non-classical states of a massive mechanical system exposed to the influences of noise has been devised by Dr. Mauro Paternostro. The proposal merges two mature areas of quantum technology, cavity opto-mechanics and photon subtraction, and is currently under scrutiny by an experimental team. The work has been published in the current issue of Physical Review Letters as M. Paternostro, Phys. Rev. Lett. 106, 183601 (2011)
