Marie Curie Actions funded fellowship Optomechanics in a membrane-in-the-middle setup

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The goal of the research is to develop an optical cavity with a thin membrane

between the two mirrors at cryogenic temperatures able to reach the quantum

regime. In particular we plan to achieve the quantum ground state of an appropriate vibrational mode of the membrane,demonstrate and detect quantum

entanglement between the resonator and a cavity mode, to exploit bimodal

cooling, and finally to generate ponderomotive squeezing at the cavity output.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
