Magnetic-field-mediated coupling and control in hybrid atomic-nanomechanical systems

10 May 2016  ·  Tretiakov A., LeBlanc L. J. ·

Magnetically coupled hybrid quantum systems enable robust quantum state control through Landau-Zener transitions. Here, we show that an ultracold atomic sample coupled to a nanomechanical resonator via oscillating magnetic fields can be used to cool the resonator's mechanical motion, to measure the mechanical temperature, and to enable entanglement of these mesoscopic objects... We calculate the expected coupling for both permanent-magnet and current-conducting nanostring resonators and describe how this hybridization is attainable using recently developed fabrication techniques, including SiN nanostrings and atom chips. read more
