Constraining modified gravity with quantum optomechanics

  title={Constraining modified gravity with quantum optomechanics},
  author={Sofia Qvarfort and Dennis Ratzel and Stephen Stopyra},
We derive the best possible bounds that can be placed on Yukawa– and chameleon–like modifications to the Newtonian gravitational potential with a cavity optomechanical quantum sensor. By modelling the effects on an oscillating source-sphere on the optomechanical system from first-principles, we derive the fundamental sensitivity with which these modifications can be detected in the absence of environmental noise. In particular, we take into account the large size of the optomechanical probe… Expand
