Optomechanical Quantum Correlations



Thomas P. Purdy, Karen E. Grutter, Kartik A. Srinivasan, Nikolai N. Klimov, Zeeshan Ahmed, Jacob M. Taylor


We present methods to measure optical quantum correlations arising from an optomechanical interaction even when large classical noise sources are present. We demonstrate quantum- backaction-noise-calibrated Brownian motion thermometry as a metrological application of quantum optomechanics.
