    About Quantum Optomechanics group

    The Quantum Optomechanics group at the Niels Bohr Institute has pioneered a new approach to engineer mechanical systems of unprecedented coherence. We now seek support to push the development of a new generation of quantum optomechanical systems that can serve as quantum memory and/or are operated at room temperature.
