Nonlinear opto-mechanics using radiation pressure in high-Q microcavities
Recent experiments that use radiation pressure in microcavities either to create micro-wave-rate mechanical oscillations, or to cool a mechanical degree of freedom to cryogenic temperatures are overviewed. The implication of these results for new science is discussed.
