This provides a powerful method for optically actuating microwave-frequency mechanical oscillators on a chip, and we demonstrate an on-chip phonon laser that emits over microwave-frequency phonons per second with a ratio of frequency to linewidth of 2 million—characteristics similar to those of the first optical lasers. By comparison, in microwave devices, low-loss superconducting structures have been used for gradient-force-mediated coupling to a nanomechanical oscillator of picogram mass. We discuss the future of optomechanical crystals and provide new methods of calculating all the otptomechanical properties of the structures. These structures merge the fields of cavity optomechanics and nanomechanics into nano-optomechanical systsms NOMS. Citation Eichenfield, Matthew S.

Back-action cooling, for example, is being pursued as a means of achieving the quantum ground state of macroscopic mechanical oscillators. These structures merge the fields of cavity optomechanics and nanomechanics into nano-optomechanical systsms NOMS. This provides a powerful method for optically actuating microwave-frequency mechanical oscillators on a chip, and we demonstrate an on-chip phonon laser that emits over microwave-frequency phonons per second with a ratio of frequency to linewidth of 2 million—characteristics similar to those of the first optical lasers.

The miniscule effective volume of the mechanical mode corresponds to effective motional masses in the femtogram regime, which, coupled with the enormous optomechanical interaction and high optical and mechanical quality factors, allows transduction of microwave-frequency mechanical motion nearly at the standard quantum limit, with the standard quantum limit easily within reach with simple modifications of the experimental apparatus.

The combination of eichenfidld small motional mass and strong optomechanical coupling allows each trapped photon to drive motion of an acoustic mode with a force more than 15 times the weight of the structure. Cavity optomechanics in photonic and phononic crystals: We call these photonic and phononic crystal bandgap cavities optomechanical crystals.

The optical mode of the coupled system is exquisitely sensitive to differential motion of the beams, producing optomechanical coupling right at the fundamental limit set by optical diffraction.

The second device focuses on ecihenfield one of the doubly-clamped nanoscale beams of the Zipper. The mechanical modes of the beam probed with a background sensitivity only a factor of 4 above the standard quantum limit, and the application of less than a milliwatt of optical power ghesis shown to increase the mechanical rigidity of the system by almost an order of magnitude.

With the ability to readily interconvert photons and microwave-frequency eixhenfield on the surface of a microchip, new chip-scale technologies can be created. A Caltech Library Service.

Because the optical and mechanical modes occupy a volume more than eichenfueld, times smaller than the volume of a single human cell, the optomechanical interaction in this system is again at the fundamental limit set by optical diffraction. We show that, in addition to a photonic bandgap cavity, the periodic patterning of the beam also produces a phononic bandgap cavity with localized mechanical modes having frequencies in the microwave regime. In this thesis, two different nanometer-scale structures that use combinations of gradient and radiation pressure optical forces are described theoretically and demonstrated experimentally.
