We propose a quantum mechanical method of constraining non-Newtonian gravity at the nanometer range. In this method, a hybrid electro-optomechanical system is employed. Applying a strong driving field, we can obtain normal mode splitting of the electromechanical subsystem which is related to the resonance frequency of the mechanical oscillator. Moreover, we investigate the relationship between the variance of normal mode splitting and the resonance frequency shift induced by the gradient of… Expand

Constraints on Yukawa-Type Deviations from Newtonian Gravity at 20 Microns
Recent theories of physics beyond the standard model have predicted deviations from Newtonian gravity at short distances. In order to test these theories, we have a built an apparatus that canExpand
Testing Newtonian gravity at the nanometer distance scale using the iso-electronic effect
Abstract We describe a new experimental and theoretical effort to search for new forces and extra spatial dimensions over nanometer distance scales. Since the Casimir force produces a largeExpand
Stronger Limits on Hypothetical Yukawa Interactions in the 30-8000 nm Range.
The technique employed subtracts the otherwise dominant Casimir force at the outset and leads to a significant improvement over existing limits on the strength (relative to gravity) of a putative force in the 40-8000 nm interaction range. Expand
Constraining New Forces in the Casimir Regime Using the Isoelectronic Technique
We report the first isoelectronic differential force measurements between an Au-coated probe and two Au-coated films, made out of Au and Ge. These measurements, performed at submicron separationsExpand

Critical behavior in ultrastrong-coupled oscillators
We investigate the strong-coupling regime of a linear x-x coupled harmonic-oscillator system by performing a direct diagonalization of the Hamiltonian. It is shown that the x-x coupled HamiltonianExpand
Limits on nonstandard forces in the submicrometer range.
By comparing the data and the theory of the Casimir force, constraints for the parameter alpha of the Yukawa-type deviations from Newtonian gravity are obtained and lower limits for the fundamental scale M* for gauged baryon number in the bulk are obtained. Expand
Constraints on corrections to Newtonian gravity from two recent measurements of the Casimir interaction between metallic surfaces
We obtain constraints on parameters of the Yukawa-type corrections to Newton's gravitational law from measurements of the gradient of the Casimir force between surfaces coated with ferromagneticExpand
Improvement for Testing the Gravitational Inverse-Square Law at the Submillimeter Range.
This work establishes the strongest bound on the magnitude α of the Yukawa violation in the range of 40-350  μm, and improves the previous bounds by up to a factor of 3 at the length scale λ≈70‬‬μm. Expand
