Levitated Nanoparticles for Technology and Quantum Nanophysics: New frontiers in physics at the nanoscale.

Project description

Integrating levitated nano-objects with electronic circuits

The fields of micro-electromechanical and nano-electromechanical (MEMS/NEMS) systems are developing rapidly. The transition from MEMS to NEMS, which comprise devices integrating electrical and mechanical functionality at the nanoscale, is promising. However, it is hindered by the unavoidable environmental contact as well as energy dissipation through strain. The EU-funded LeviTeQ project will cool the motion and rotation of tailor-made silicon particles, enabling full quantum-level control. It will pioneer the control of nanoparticles by electronic circuits, allowing simple technological integration in a room-temperature environment. The project research will pave the way for the creation of a levitated quantum object acting as a node in a quantum network, offering coherent signal storage and conversion.
