Coupling quantum systems to mechanical motion is attractive for fundamental science and sensing. We have embedded a semiconductor quantum dot QD inside a mechanical resonator that provides a versatile platform for advances in this area. Driving mechanical motion produces large changes in the QD optical transition as well as the spin degree of freedom, indicating strong potential for quantum sensing.
