JYUNewsItem Amplifying radiation pressure makes effects related to single quanta of light or vibration discernible
Researchers from four Finnish universities (Jyväskylä, Helsinki, Oulu and Aalto) have shown how the radiation pressure coupling between light and matter can be amplified to a regime where effects related to single quanta of light or vibration can be discernible. This finding paves the way on using high-quality mechanical resonators for storage of quantum information.
