ECE Seminar: Integrated Cavity-optomechanical Circuits Towards a Photonic-phononic Quantum Interface
Tuesday, February 21, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Hybrid quantum architecture, harnessing the distinctive advantages of the constituent physical systems, is anticipated to benefit universal quantum information processing and quantum computation. Photons and phonons, residing on disparate energy scales yet both being able to interact with a plethora of physical systems, can play a critical role for interconnections in such hybrid quantum architecture. In this regard, understanding and engineering the interaction between phonons and photons in micro- and nano-scale structures is of great importance. In this talk, I will present works on developing integrated cavity-optomechanical circuits towards a photonic-phononic quantum interface.
