The vision of our lab is to explore fundamental research focusing on exploring quantum behavior of macroscopic objects and to develop novel devices for quantum technologies such as quantum-enhanced sensing.
We address these research questions with nano- and micromechanical systems. Key is that we follow different approaches to pursue our exciting research: coupling mechanical motion to light in so-called cavity optomechanical devices; using superconducting magnetic levitation as a means to reach ultra-low mechanical dissipation; and exploring embedded quantum emitters in two-dimensional materials.
Our research is interdisciplinary and brings together methods from quantum optics, quantum information, solid state physics, superconductivity, and photonics. Our group expertise spans the entire research methodology: from device simulation over device fabrication in Chalmers in-house Nanofabrication laboratory to device characterization.
