Bevillingen skal bruges til at ansætte en postdoc i 2 år. En beskrivelse af projektet "On-chip electro-opto-mechanical platforms" er givet nedenfor.
This project aims at developing and characterizing novel electro-opto-mechanical components in which the vibrations of high-quality mechanical resonators (silicon nitride membrane drums) can be activated by both optical and electrical fields. Such on-chip integrated platforms will find applications in signal processing and sensing at low-power levels – e.g. for realizing optical switches, delay lines, microwave-to-optical transductors for telecommunications and metrology – and will allow for investigating fundamental physics using arrays of coupled quantum oscillators.
