Contents Introduction -- Basic Theory of Cavity Optomechanical Systems -- Interaction between micro- and nanomechanical systems and light -- Generation of squeezed optical or mechanical states -- Applications -- Novel high-bandwidth mechanical sensing devices -- Quantum information -- Quantum optics -- Gravitational wave detectors -- Biological sensing -- Frequency comb -- Silicon photonics -- Novel high-bandwidth mechanical sensing devices
Summary During the last few years cavity-optomechanics has emerged as a new field of research. This highly interdisciplinary field studies the interaction between micro- and nanomechanical systems and light. Possible applications range from novel high-bandwidth mechanical sensing devices through the generation of squeezed optical or mechanical states to even tests of quantum theory itself. This is one of the first books in this relatively young field. it is aimed at scientists, engineers, and students who want to obtain a concise introduction to the state of the art in the field of cavity optomechanics. It is valuable to researchers in nanoscience, quantum optics, quantum information, gravitational wave detection and other cutting edge fields. Possible applications include biological sensing, frequency comb applications, silicon photonics etc. The technical content will be accessible to those who have familiarity with basic undergraduate physics
