Black holes and dark energy from gravitational collapse on the brane

The gravitational collapse of a pressureless fluid in general relativity (Oppenheimer–Snyder collapse) results in a black hole. The study of the same phenomenon in the brane-world scenario has shown

Enhanced Evanescent Field Coupling of Smart Particles in Tubular Optical Microcavity for Sensing Application

Whispering‐gallery mode (WGM) optical microcavity with enhanced evanescent field is one of the most perfect systems to study light–matter interaction. Unique sensing devices and potential

Combined Test of the Gravitational Inverse-Square Law at the Centimeter Range.

This work establishes the strongest bound on the magnitude α of Yukawa-type deviations from Newtonian gravity in the range of 5-500 mm and improves the previous bounds by up to a factor of 7 at the length range of 60-100 mm.

Characterizing microring resonators using optical frequency domain reflectometry.

A calculation model is proposed to derive the resonance mode's intrinsic $Q$-factor from OFDR measurements of a series of loaded resonators, which can be accurately determined by further processing the backscattered optical signals.

Aspects of $$(d+D)$$ ( d + D ) -dimensional anisotropic conformal gravit

We discuss various aspects of anisotropic gravity in $$(d+D)$$ ( d + D ) -dimensional spacetime, where D dimensions are treated as extra dimensions. It is based on the foliation preserving

Quantum sensing with milligram scale optomechanical systems

Abstract Probing the boundary between classical and quantum mechanics has been one of the central themes in modern physics. Recently, experiments to precisely measure the force acting on milligram

Multipolar scattering expansion for the Casimir effect in the sphere-plane geometry.

We evaluate the Casimir interaction between a sphere and a plane, at arbitrary temperature, accounting for imperfect reflection. This enables us to study the rich dependance of the Casimir effect on

New features of black strings and branes in higher dimensional gravity due to a cosmological constant

This thesis is essentially organized in two parts: braneworlds and higher dimensional black objects with a cosmological constant. We present solitonic braneworld models where the brane are inflating
