Optomechanical Raman-Ratio Thermometry

Author(s)
Katarina Cicak, Tom Purdy, Pen Li Yu, Nir Kampel, Bob Peterson, Raymond W. Simmonds, Cindy Regal
The temperature dependence of the asymmetry between Stokes and anti-Stokes Raman scattering can be exploited for self-calibrating, optically-based thermometry

Tunable Resonant and Nonresonant Interactions between a Phase Qubit and LC Resonator

Michael S. Allman, Jed D. Whittaker, Manuel C. Castellanos Beltran, Katarina Cicak, Fabio C. Da Silva, Michael DeFeo, Florent Q. Lecocq, Adam J. Sirois, John D. Teufel, Jose A. Aumentado, Raymond W. Simmonds
We use a flux-biased radio frequency superconducting quantum interference device (rf SQUID) with an embedded flux-biased direct current SQUID to generate strong

A phononic bandgap shield for high-Q membrane microresonators

Author(s)
Raymond W. Simmonds, P.-L. Yu, Katarina Cicak, N. S. Kampel, Y. Tsaturyan, T. P. Purdy, C. A. Regal
A phononic crystal can control the acoustic coupling between a resonator and its support structure. We micromachine a phononic bandgap shield for high Q silicon
