Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim of this course is to cover advanced topics in quantum optomechanics with a special focus on:

- basics of cavity optomechanical interaction with different mechanical oscillators
- cooling of the mechanical motion with light
- preparation of nonclassical states of motion
- multimode optomechanics
- advanced detection schemes
- measuring small displacement with optics
- optomechanics with trapped atoms and nanoparticles
- hybrid optomechanical systems

Topics will be further explained and expanded through exercises based on modern optomechanics experiments.

Assessment and permitted materials

Final grade will be given based on a combined performance in the exam (60% of the grade) and in the exercises (40% of the grade). No course materials or textbooks will be allowed in the exam.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Minimum 50% of points acquired in the exam and the exercises in order to obtain a passing grade.

Examination topics

Topics covered in the lectures and exercises.

Reading list

Will be provided during the lecture.
