Coupling Artificial Atoms to Nano- and Opto-mechanical Systems

Symposium Organizers

Paul Barclay, University of Calgary, Canada
Hailin Wang, University of Oregon, USA

This symposium will focus on recent experimental and theoretical advances on coupling artificial atoms, such as defect centers and quantum dots, to nanomechanical or optomechanical resonators. These hybrid quantum systems bring together concepts and techniques from different disciplines — optics and atomic physics, nanophotonics, nanomechanics and quantum information science — and allow spin control of mechanical motion as well as mechanical control of the spin states. Quantum control of both spin and mechanical degrees of freedom in these systems can enable potential applications in quantum information processing such as phononic or phononic-photonic quantum networks, as well as quantum transducers for quantum networking.
