ENS-LKB Optomechanics and Quantum Measurements

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version
Research Type: 

We study the interaction mediated by radiation pressure between light and mechanical resonators. Our goals include overcoming quantum limits in high-precision interferometric measurements (such as gravitational-wave interferometers) or realizing quantum-coherent hybrid transducers based on nano-optomechanical devices.


  • Quantum limits in high-precision measurements
  • Quantum optomechanics with macroscopic mechanical resonators
  • Hybrid optomechanical transducers using photonic crystal nanomembranes
  • Participation to the Virgo Collaboration for radiation pressure effects and quantum noises
  • Low-vibration cryogenics
  • Low-noise RF measurements
