Ground-state cooling of mechanical motion by coupling to a driven optical cavity has been demonstrated in various optomechanical systems. In our work, we provide a so far missing thermodynamic performance analysis of optomechanical sideband cooling in terms of a heat valve. As performance quantifiers we examine not only the lowest reachable effective temperature (phonon number), but also the evacuated-heat flow as an equivalent to the cooling power of a standard refrigerator, as well as… 


Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics with Frequency-Dependent Reflectors.
This work illustrates how a non-Markovian Fano-resonance cavity with a flexible photonic-crystal mirror can provide both sideband resolution as well as strong heating suppression in optomechanical cooling.
Suppression of Stokes scattering and improved optomechanical cooling with squeezed light
We develop a theory of optomechanical cooling with a squeezed input light field. We show that Stokes heating transitions can be \emph{fully} suppressed when the driving field is squeezed below the
Cavity-assisted backaction cooling of mechanical resonators
We analyze the quantum regime of the dynamical backaction cooling of a mechanical resonator assisted by a driven harmonic oscillator (cavity). Our treatment applies to both optomechanical and

Cavity enhancement of optical fields is providing a new way to couple light and mechanical motion. Its application to mechanical cooling and amplification, example implementations, and prospects for
Experimental Determination of Irreversible Entropy Production in out-of-Equilibrium Mesoscopic Quantum Systems.
This work experimentally measure and characterize the entropy production rates in the nonequilibrium steady state of two different physical systems-a micromechanical resonator and a Bose-Einstein condensate-each coupled to a high finesse cavity and hence also subject to optical loss.

The xishacorene natural products are structurally unique apolar diterpenoids that feature a bicyclo[3.3.1] framework. These secondary metabolites likely arise from the well-studied, structurally
Silicon photonics interfaced with integrated electronics for 9 GHz measurement of squeezed light
Photonic quantum technology can be enhanced by monolithic fabrication of both the underpinning quantum hardware and the corresponding electronics for classical readout and control. Here, by
Cavity optomechanics with photonic bound states in the continuum
We propose a versatile, free-space cavity optomechanics platform built from two photonic crystal membranes, one of which is freely suspended, and designed to form a microcavity less than one
Experimental Assessment of Entropy Production in a Continuously Measured Mechanical Resonator.
This work considers an optomechanical system subjected to continuous displacement Gaussian measurements and characterize the entropy production rate of the individual trajectories followed by the system in its stochastic dynamics, employing a phase-space description in terms of the Wigner entropy.
