Two-mode noise interference paper on the arxiv!

“Trampoline-in-the-middle” (TIM) system.

Here we (Yariv) analyze(s) a system in which the coupling between two optical modes is modulated by the motion of a mechanical element. Interestingly, we find that this class of systems should be capable of ground state cooling in the so-called “bad cavity” limit, due to interference of quantum noise (a more general instance of “dissipative coupling”). Also, contrary to a common intuition, we show that quantum nondemolition readout is in general not possible in this class of systems without single-photon strong optomechanical coupling.
