An inertially sensitive optomechanical laser by combining a vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting laser (VECSEL) with a monolithic fused silica resonator with the aim of creating a sensor where external accelerations are directly transcribed onto the lasing frequency.

Cavity opto-mechanics using an optically levitated nanosphere

A novel approach is proposed, in which optically levitating a nano-mechanical system can greatly reduce its thermal contact, while simultaneously eliminating dissipation arising from clamping, which potentially opens the door to ground-state cooling and coherent manipulation of a single mesoscopic mechanical system or entanglement generation between spatially separate systems, even in room-temperature environments.

Zeptonewton force sensing with nanospheres in an optical lattice

Optically trapped nanospheres in high vacuum experience little friction and hence are promising for ultrasensitive force detection. Here we demonstrate measurement times exceeding ${10}^{5}$ s and

It is expected that the proposed system could advance the search for non-Newtonian gravity forces via an enhanced sensitivity of 10(5)-10(7) over current experiments at the 1 μm length scale and may be useful for characterizing other short-range physics such as Casimir forces.
