Near-field Levitated Quantum Optomechanics with Nanodiamonds

26 Aug 2016 Juan M. L. Molina-Terriza G. Volz T. Romero-Isart O.

We theoretically show that the dipole force of an ensemble of quantum emitters embedded in a dielectric nanosphere can be exploited to achieve near-field optical levitation. The key ingredient is that the polarizability from the ensemble of embedded quantum emitters can be larger than the bulk polarizability of the sphere, thereby enabling the use of repulsive optical potentials and consequently the levitation using optical near-fields...
