Shot-noise-limited nanomechanical detection and radiation pressure backaction from an electron beam (2019)
Journal Article
Pairis, S., Donatini, F., Hocevar, M., Tumanov, D., Vaish, N., Claudon, J., …Verlot, P. (2019). Shot-noise-limited nanomechanical detection and radiation pressure backaction from an electron beam. Physical Review Letters, 122(8), doi:10.1103/physrevlett.122.083603

Detecting nanomechanical motion has become an important challenge in science and technology. Recently, electromechanical coupling to focused electron beams has emerged as a promising method adapted to ultralow scale systems. However the fundamental m... Read More

Strain-mediated coupling in a quantum dot–mechanical oscillator hybrid system (2013)
Journal Article
Yeo, I., de Assis, P., Gloppe, A., Dupont-Ferrier, E., Verlot, P., Malik, N. S., …Richard, M. (2014). Strain-mediated coupling in a quantum dot–mechanical oscillator hybrid system. Nature Nanotechnology, 9(2), 106-110. doi:10.1038/nnano.2013.274

Recent progress in nanotechnology has allowed the fabrication of new hybrid systems in which a single two-level system is coupled to a mechanical nanoresonator1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. In such systems the quantum nature of a macroscopic degree of freedom ca... Read More
