Title: Communicating Between Disparate Quantum Systems via Radiation Pressure Force


It is well known that radiation pressure force of light can be used for the manipulation of mechanical motion in microscopic systems. Notable examples include laser cooling and laser tweezers.   In this talk, I will discuss recent experimental advances on the use of radiation pressure force to control mechanical motion in macroscopic systems, with a focus on potential applications in quantum networks. Experimental

New funding for Science Literacy Program

The Science Literacy Program, which is co-operated under CAS with Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Biochemstry, Geological Sciences, and Human Physiology, has been named a recipient of long-term recurring funding under the UO’s 2015 Strategic Initiative. This award will provide stable funding for between 16 and 24 graduate SLP Fellows per year to work alongside faculty to co-develop and co-teach science courses for non-science majors. Congratulations to SLP co-directors Michael Raymer (Physics) and Judith Eisen (Biology), and associate director Elly Vandegrift!
