LIME Team

The LIght and MEchanics (LIME) team studies the interactions between light and miniature mechanical resonators (micro- or nanomechanical). Its research is therefore positioned in the field of optomechanics, at the interface between light and matter. The team addresses both fundamental questions (quantum behavior of mechanical systems, decoherence phenomena at mesoscopic scales), and applications, notably in the field of optical and mechanical sensors. Thanks to its strong nanotechnology background, LIME ventures into multidisciplinary fields involving semiconductors, fluidics, biophysics and the development of new types of microscopes.

Résonateur Optomécanique

Un résonateur optique (ici une cavité Fabry-Pérot constituée de deux miroirs) est nourri par une lumière laser incidente. Le miroir arrière de la cavité est monté sur un ressort, devenant lui-même un résonateur mécanique. Deux résonateurs, optique et mécanique, sont ainsi couplés.
