The school will cover the emerging fields of cavity optomechanics and quantum nanomechanics. These rapidly progressing fields comprise a large variety of systems (including mechanical resonators in superconducting circuits, trapped atomic samples, integrated photonic circuits, and many more). Significant experimental breakthroughs have recently been achieved, such as the experimental demonstration of the quantum ground state of a mechanical resonator, entanglement of a mechanical resonator with a superconducting qubit and a microwave field, and gravitational-wave interferometry with squeezed light. Possible applications include the coherent conversion of quantum information from microwave to optical frequencies, ultrasensitive measurement of displacements, forces and accelerations, and tests of fundamental questions in quantum physics. The courses and seminars by world-leading experts will cover gravitational-wave detection, applications of squeezing, nano- and optomechanics in superconducting circuits, the theory of quantum measurements, optomechanics with photonic crystals, trapped atoms, foundational questions, and more.

Organizers: Pierre-François Cohadon, Jack Harris, and Florian Marquardt
