Quantum Motional Sideband Asymmetry in the Presence of Kerr-type Nonlinearities


Sideband asymmetry between the Stokes and anti-Stokes scattering is a signature of the mechanical oscillators in the quantum regime. It has been demonstrated in several optomechanical systems, as a self-calibrated thermometry... [ view full abstract ]
