    A blueprint for a simultaneous test of quantum mechanics and general relativity in a space-based quantum optics experiment

    In this paper we propose an experiment designed to observe a general-relativistic effect on single photon interference. The experiment consists of a folded Mach-Zehnder interferometer, with the arms distribute...

    Geometric control theory for quantum back-action evasion

    Engineering a sensor system for detecting an extremely tiny signal such as the gravitational-wave force is a very important subject in quantum physics. A major obstacle to this goal is that, in a simple detect...

    Tunable coupling of transmission-line microwave resonators mediated by an rf SQUID

    We realize tunable coupling between two superconducting transmission line resonators. The coupling is mediated by a non-hysteretic rf SQUID acting as a flux-tunable mutual inductance between the resonators. We...
