Macroscopic Optomechanics from Displaced Single-Photon Entanglement

Aspelmeyer, Markus
Published in Physical Review Letters. 2014, vol. 112, no. 8
Abstract Displaced single-photon entanglement is a simple form of optical entanglement, obtained by sending a photon on a beam splitter and subsequently applying a displacement operation. We show that it can generate, through a momentum transfer in the pulsed regime, an optomechanical entangled state involving macroscopically distinct mechanical components, even if the optomechanical system operates in the single-photon weak coupling regime. We discuss the experimental feasibility of this approach and show that it might open up a way for testing unconventional decoherence models.
