Abstract:

The goal of this pilot project is to demonstrate unambiguous synchronization between two nanoscale mechanical oscillators. In the system we studied, two mechanical resonators are remotely placed and linked in a closed-loop photonic bus waveguide, which can be treated as a photonic cavity. A programmable optical field is used to achieve controlled coupling between the two resonators via delayed optical force. The optical backaction force induces both displacement coupling and velocity coupling, and gives rise to much richer dynamics than previous studied system where the coupling occurs in only one degree of freedom.
