Photothermal effects, Optomechanics and Optical Levitation

Gu, Chenyue


The invention of lasers enabled strong and controllable interactions between light and small objects. Radiation pressure provides a unique tool for optomechanical control and manipulation of the quantum state of a mechanical oscillator. The high power density and photon flux of laser radiation lead to extremely high heating rates at surfaces, which induce measurement noise and is hence considered harmful in sensing systems. Optomechanical interaction can also be mediated by photothermal effects...[Show more]
