We investigate the nonlinear interaction between a squeezed cavity mode and a mechanical mode in an optomechanical system (OMS) that allows us to selectively obtain either a radiation-pressure coupling or a parametric-amplification process. The squeezing of the cavity mode can enhance the interaction strength into the single-photon strong-coupling regime, even when the OMS is originally in the weak-coupling regime. Moreover, the noise of the squeezed mode can be suppressed completely by…

This work shows how to exponentially enhance the single-photon optomechanical coupling strength using only additional linear resources, based on using a large-amplitude, strongly detuned mechanical parametric drive to amplify mechanical zero-point fluctuations and hence enhance the radiation pressure interaction.

Enhanced quantum nonlinearities in a two-mode optomechanical system.
The regime of single-photon strong coupling is reached when the optical shift induced by a single phonon becomes comparable to the cavity linewidth, and a setup in this regime comprising two optical modes and one mechanical mode is considered.
Signatures of nonlinear cavity optomechanics in the weak coupling regime.
It is shown that if the strong laser drive is detuned by half the mechanical frequency, optomechanically induced transparency also occurs due to resonant two-photon processes, and this effect provides a new method of measuring the average phonon number of the mechanical oscillator.

Optomechanically induced transparency in the mechanical-mode splitting regime.
A decoupled Heisenberg-Langevin equation is employed for the observation and physical interpretation of mechanical-mode splitting (MMS) of the movable mirror in a generic optomechanical system and two transparent windows are opened to find the second splitting of the mechanical mode in this two-mode optomekanical system.

We investigate the squeezing for a movable mirror in the dissipative optomechanics in which the oscillating mirror modulates both the resonance frequency and the linewidth of the cavity mode. Via
Optomechanically induced transparency in the nonlinear quantum regime.
It is demonstrated that pulsed transistorlike switching of transmission still works even in this regime, and it is shown that optomechanically induced transparency at the second mechanical sideband could be a sensitive tool to see first indications of the nonlinear quantum nature of the Optomechanical interaction even for single-photon coupling strengths significantly smaller than the cavity linewidth.
