We propose and analyze a setup to achieve strong coupling between a single trapped atom and a mechanical oscillator. The interaction between the motion of the atom and the mechanical oscillator is mediated by a quantized light field in a laser driven high-finesse cavity. In particular, we show that high fidelity transfer of quantum states between the atom(More)
Optomechanical systems exploit the interaction between the optical radiation field and mechanical resonators in a laser-driven cavity. In the past few years, these systems have been the focus of considerable experimental and theoretical attention, yielding promising successes, particularly in using optomechanical cooling to reduce the thermal occupation of(More)
