A Voigt effect based 3D vector magnetometer (2019)
Journal Article
Pyragius, T., Marin Florez, H., & Fernholz, T. (2019). A Voigt effect based 3D vector magnetometer. Physical Review A, 100(2), doi:10.1103/PhysRevA.100.023416

We describe a method to dispersively detect all three vector components of an external magnetic field using alkali atoms based on the Voigt effect. Our method relies on measuring the linear birefringence of the radio frequency dressed atomic medium v... Read More

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
