Backaction-evading measurement of mechanical motion in the optical domain


When measuring the position of a mechanical oscillator, quantum mechanics imposes a strict limit on the attainable precision: Any reduction of imprecision leads to increased quantum backaction of the measuring probe on the... [ view full abstract ]
