Abstract:

Mechanical resonators are gradually becoming available as new quantum systems. Quantum optics in combination with optomechanical interactions (quantum optomechanics) provides a particularly helpful toolbox for generating and controlling mechanical quantum states. We highlight some of the current challenges in the field by discussing two of our recent experiments.
