A robust single-beam optical trap for a gram-scale mechanical oscillator

Altin, Paul; Nguyen, Thanh; Slagmolen, Bram; Ward, Robert; Shaddock, Daniel; McClelland, David


Precise optical control of microscopic particles has been mastered over the past three decades, with atoms, molecules and nano-particles now routinely trapped and cooled with extraordinary precision, enabling rapid progress in the study of quantum phenomena. Achieving the same level of control over macroscopic objects is expected to bring further advances in precision measurement, quantum information processing and fundamental tests of quantum mechanics. However, cavity optomechanical systems...[Show more]
