Our paper on Cavity optomechanics with photonic bound states in the continuum has been published in Phys. Rev. Research. This theory proposal brings optomechanics into the regime of single photon quantum cooperativity. Thanks to the fantastic collaboration with Jamie and Philippe!
We have successfully installed our dilution refrigerator last week, which was great fun. First cooldown done! Many more to come …
Welcome Johan! Johan joins our lab as a Master student working with the optomechanics project. Enjoy working with us!
We welcome Gerard, David and Achintya as new team members in our lab. Gerard joins as a PostDoc and he will spend part of his PostDoc with us and part with the Aspelmeyer group in Vienna, Austria. Achintya will do his PhD with us. Both, Gerard and Achintya, will bring the magnetic levitation experiment forward! David is our first Amanuens student in the lab and will give his helping hand to the optomechanics experiment.
