Measurements with variable system–detector interaction strength, ranging from weak to strong, have been recently reported in a number of electronic nanosystems. In several such instances many-body effects play a significant role. Here we consider the weak-to-strong crossover for a setup consisting of an electronic Mach–Zehnder interferometer,...

We investigate theoretically in detail the nonlinear effects in the response of an optical/microwave cavity coupled to a Duffing mechanical resonator. The cavity is driven by a laser at a red or blue mechanical subband, and a probe laser measures the reflection close to the cavity resonance. Under these conditions, we find that the cavity...

In cavity optomechanics, light is used to control mechanical motion. A central goal of the field is achieving single-photon strong coupling, which would enable the creation of quantum superposition states of motion. Reaching this limit requires significant improvements in optomechanical coupling and cavity coherence. Here we introduce an...

We study a system of two bosonic fields subject to two-mode squeezing in the presence of dissipation. We find the Lie algebra governing the dynamics of the problem and use the Wei-Norman method to determine the solutions. Using this scheme, we arrive at a closed-form expression for an infinitely dimensional density operator which we use to...

Nonresonant circularly polarized electromagnetic radiation can exert torques on magnetizations by the inverse Faraday effect (IFE). Here, we discuss the enhancement of IFE by spin-orbit interactions. We illustrate the principle by studying a simple generic model system, i.e., the quasi-one-dimensional ring in the presence of linear/cubic Rashba...

Graphene is a convenient material for nanomechanical applications since high-frequency oscillations are easily accessible. In this article, we consider graphene on a rough substrate attached to imperfections at random locations. We explore the statistics of low-lying phonon modes, which exert most influence on the conductivity of graphene. Our...

We study the transport of electrons through a single-mode quantum ring with electric-field induced Rashba spin-orbit interaction that is subject to an in-plane magnetic field and weakly coupled to electron reservoirs. Modeling a ring array by ensemble averaging over a Gaussian distribution of energy-level positions, we predict slow conductance...

We have used the mechanical motion of a carbon nanotube (CNT) as a probe of the average charge on a quantum dot. Variations of the resonance frequency and the quality factor are determined by the change in average charge on the quantum dot during a mechanical oscillation. The average charge, in turn, is influenced by the gate voltage, the bias...

We theoretically consider a Josephson junction formed by a ferromagnetic spacer with a strong spin-orbit interaction or a magnetic spin valve, i.e., a bilayer with one static and one free layer. Electron spin transport facilitates a nonlinear dynamical coupling between the magnetic moment and charge current, which consists of normal and...

We investigate electric and magnetic properties of graphene with rotationally symmetric strain. The strain generates a large pseudomagnetic field with alternating sign in space, which forms a strongly confined quantum dot connected to six chiral channels. The orbital magnetism, degeneracy, and channel opening can be understood from the interplay...

Measuring the quantum dynamics of a mechanical system, when few phonons are involved, remains a challenge. We show that a superconducting microwave resonator linearly coupled to the mechanical mode constitutes a very powerful probe for this scope. This new coupling can be much stronger than the usual radiation pressure interaction by adjusting a...

We investigate the conductivity of graphene sheet deformed over a gate. The effect of the deformation on the conductivity is twofold: The lattice distortion can be represented as pseudovector potential in the Dirac equation formalism, whereas the gate causes inhomogeneous density redistribution. We use the elasticity theory to find the profile...

Recently, a lasing effect has been observed in a superconducting nanocircuit where a Cooper-pair box, acting as an artificial three-level atom, was coupled to a resonator [O. Astafiev, K. Inomata, A. O. Niskanen, T. Yamamoto, Yu. A. Pashkin, Y. Nakamura, and J. S. Tsai, Nature (London) 449, 588 (2007)]. Motivated by this experiment, we analyze...

We present a phenomenon of an asymptotic revival of bipartite entanglement between two stable solid-state qubits interacting via a single-mode cavity subject to dissipation. This effect is achievable in cavity quantum electrodynamics systems, assisted with strong classical pumping detuned from the cavity eigenmode, under the assumption of short...

We have measured the backaction of a dc superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) position detector on an integrated 1 MHz flexural resonator. The frequency and quality factor of the micromechanical resonator can be tuned with bias current and applied magnetic flux. The backaction is caused by the Lorentz force due to the change in...

We analyze the properties of a mechanical resonator embedded into a quantum SQUID and analyze under which conditions it is possible to realize a resonant coupling between the SQUID and the resonator. We find, within the present technology, how it is possible to tune the system into the regime where the plasma frequency of the SQUID matches the...

We study electronic transport in graphene nanoribbons with rough edges. We first consider a model of weak disorder that corresponds to an armchair ribbon whose width randomly changes by a single unit cell size. We find that in this case, the low-temperature conductivity is governed by an effective one-dimensional hopping between segments of...

We investigate the dynamics of a superconducting rectifying circuit, namely, a three-junction superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID), where one arm of the superconducting loop consists of a nanomechanical resonator. We find that the dc characteristic curve of the system displays features that are directly related to the frequency...

We study the model of a molecular switch comprised of a molecule with a soft vibrational degree of freedom coupled to metallic leads. In the presence of strong electron-ion interaction, different charge states of the molecule correspond to substantially different ionic configurations, which can lead to very slow switching between energetically...
