Quantum entanglement goes large Quantum entanglement occurs when two separate entities become strongly linked in a way that cannot be explained by classical physics; it is a powerful resource in quantum communication protocols and advanced technologies that aim to exploit the enhanced capabilities of quantum systems. To date, entanglement has generally been limited to microscopic quantum units such as pairs or multiples of single ions, atoms, photons, and so on. Kotler et al. and Mercier de L… 
Mesoscopic quantum thermo-mechanics: A new frontier of experimental physics
In the last decade, experimentalists have demonstrated their impressive ability to control mechanical modes within mesoscopic objects down to the quantum level: it is now possible to create
Quantum state preparation and tomography of entangled mechanical resonators.
Precisely engineered mechanical oscillators keep time, filter signals and sense motion, making them an indispensable part of the technological landscape of today. These unique capabilities motivate
Quantum-mechanics-free subspaces in composite systems with incompatible energy spectra
It is well established that quantum back action (QBA) can be reduced (or even completely canceled) in composite systems by engineering so-called quantum-mechanics-free subspaces (QMFSs) of commuting

It is well established that measurement-induced quantum back action (QBA) can be eliminated in composite systems by engineering so-called quantum-mechanics-free subspaces (QMFSs) of commuting
Quantum entanglement: Bell's inequality trivially violated also classically
Quantum entanglement manifests in the perfect correlation between particles or photons separated by space and time beyond causal interference. However, classical covariance between vectorial

Mesoscopic and macroscopic quantum correlations in photonic, atomic and optomechanical systems
This paper reviews the progress that has been made in our knowledge of quantum correlations at the mesoscopic and macroscopic level. We begin by summarizing the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) argument

The ability to control the motion of mechanical systems through interaction with light has opened the door to a plethora of applications in fundamental and applied physics. With experiments routinely
Linear quantum systems: a tutorial
The purpose of this tutorial is to give a brief introduction to linear quantum control systems. The mathematical model of linear quantum control systems is presented first, then some fundamental


Direct observation of deterministic macroscopic entanglement

Entangled massive mechanical oscillators
An entangled quantum state of two or more particles or objects exhibits some of the most peculiar features of quantum mechanics. Entangled systems cannot be described independently of each other even
Entanglement between distant macroscopic mechanical and spin systems
Entanglement is an essential property of multipartite quantum systems, characterized by the inseparability of quantum states of objects regardless of their spatial separation. Generation of

The basic circuit architecture presented here provides a feasible path to ground-state cooling and subsequent coherent control and measurement of long-lived quantum states of mechanical motion and is in excellent quantitative agreement with recent theoretical predictions.
Quantum back-action-evading measurement of motion in a negative mass reference frame
It is shown that QBA on a macroscopic mechanical oscillator can be evaded if the measurement of motion is conducted in the reference frame of an atomic spin oscillator, and this hybrid quantum system paves the way to entanglement generation and distant quantum communication between mechanical and spin systems and to sensing of force, motion and gravity beyond the standard quantum limit.

The topic of quantum noise has become extremely timely due to the rise of quantum information physics and the resulting interchange of ideas between the condensed matter and atomic, molecular,
Quantum Backaction Evading Measurement of Collective Mechanical Modes.
This work demonstrates quantum backaction evading measurements of a collective quadrature of two mechanical oscillators, both coupled to a common microwave cavity, and provides a foundation for macroscopic mechanical entanglement and force sensing beyond conventional quantum limits.
Two-mode back-action-evading measurements in cavity optomechanics
We study theoretically a three-mode optomechanical system where two mechanical oscillators are coupled to a single cavity mode. By using two-tone (i.e., amplitude-modulated) driving of the cavity, it
Continuous force and displacement measurement below the standard quantum limit
Quantum mechanics dictates that the precision of physical measurements must always comply with certain noise constraints. In the case of interferometric displacement measurements, these restrictions
