Cavity Optomechanics

  title={Cavity Optomechanics},
  author={M. Aspelmeyer and T. Kippenberg and F. Marquardt},
We review the field of cavity optomechanics, which explores the interaction between electromagnetic radiation and nanoor micromechanical motion. This review covers the basics of optical cavities and mechanical resonators, their mutual optomechanical interaction mediated by the radiation pressure force, the large variety of experimental systems which exhibit this interaction, optical measurements of mechanical motion, dynamical backaction amplification and cooling, nonlinear dynamics, multimode… CONTINUE READING
