Professor/Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) of Quantum Engineering >>



In a QSIT collaboration Andreas Nunnenkamp, a postdoc in Christoph Bruder's group in Basel, and several members of Tobias Kippenberg's lab at EPFL have analyzed the reversed dissipation regime of cavity optomechanics in which the mechanical relaxation rate exceeds the decay rate of the electromagnetic cavity. They demonstrate that this to date little explored regime allows for the mechanically induced amplification of the electromagnetic mode. They derive gain, bandwidth, and added noise of the amplifier and propose an experimental scheme enabling quantum-limited amplification.

We recommend to use public transportation to get to Arosa. Information on train departures and arrivals is given by the SBB online timetable.

At Chur you have to change to the Rhätische Bahn (RhB), which will bring you in 60 minutes to Arosa.

You have to purchase a normal ticket from your place to Arosa. You will be reimbursed a half-tax return ticket at the meeting.

The hotel is at 10 minutes walking distance from the station (map).

If you decide to go by car, a narrow winding road will take you from Chur in 45 minutes 1320 m up to Arosa. Information about traffic and road conditions is found in the Internet. About parking, please contact the hotel.

You have to check in at the hotel reception. All participants are registered and a list of room mates will be published here. Please be aware that this list may change until the beginning of the conference.
