State transfer is a useful concept for connecting different quantum computing platforms to build a big quantum network. Through optomechanics state transfer can readily be achieved with cavities in the resolved sideband regime. However fabricating cavities that operate in the resolved sideband regime is challenging and typically optomechanical cavities are in the unresolved sideband regime. In that regime feedback cooling has been implemented to cool mechanical oscillators to their ground state. This talk will cover our work on unpacking a feedback cooled state to investigate feedback cooling as a path towards state transfer in the unresolved sideband regime.

About Physics Seminars

The weekly Physics Seminar series focuses on a broad range of physics research within SMP, along with frequent presentations from visiting researchers. Seminars are usually scheduled for 1.00pm on Tuesdays.

The talks are typically more specialised than a colloquium but are often attended by staff and PhD students across a broad range of areas. Speakers are thus encouraged to include introductory material in the talks.

All SMP researchers and HDR students are encouraged to speak. Please email Lewis Williamson to register your interest.

The seminars are open so there is no need to register your attendance.
