# Preparation of nonclassical states in cavities with a moving mirror

@article{Bose1997PreparationON, title={Preparation of nonclassical states in cavities with a moving mirror}, author={S. Bose and K. Jacobs and P. Knight}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={1997}, volume={56}, pages={4175-4186} }

We describe how a quantum system composed of a cavity field interacting with a movable mirror can be utilized to generate a large variety of nonclassical states of both the cavity field and the mirror. First we consider state preparation of the cavity field. The system dynamics will prepare a single mode of the cavity field in a multicomponent Schr\"odinger-cat state, in a similar manner to that in a Kerr medium. In addition, when two or more cavity modes interact with the mirror, they can be… Expand
