# A Quantum Simulation of Cavity Optomechanics

Masao Hirokawa (Hiroshima University)
Mat/Fys-seminar

Beskrivelse:
Talk begins at 13.00 sharp!

At the dawn of the 21st century, in the solid-state analogue,
an artificial atom was made by using a superconducting LC circuit.
The harmonic oscillator atom is obtained in the case without
any Josephson junction, and the 2-level atom is based on the
anharmonicity coming from Josephson junction(s).  In my talk,
I talk about the duality between a dark state and a quasi-dark state
appearing in cavity optomechanics, and consider the possibility of
its quantum simulation using superconducting circuits.
