Towards the experimental demonstration of quantum radiation pressure noise
Comptes Rendus. Physique, Volume 12 (2011) no. 9-10, pp. 826-836.

Quantum radiation pressure noise has never been experimentally demonstrated, though it has been predicted for more than thirty years. It is, however, expected to limit the low-frequency sensitivity of second generation gravitational-wave interferometers. We have demonstrated classical radiation-pressure-induced correlations between two optical beams sent into the same high-finesse cavity with a moving mirror. Our two-beam scheme can be used to retrieve quantum noise embedded in an overwhelming classical noise, and has applications both in high-sensitivity measurements and in quantum optics.

Bien que prévu depuis plus de trente ans, le bruit quantique de pression de radiation nʼa jamais été mis en évidence expérimentalement. On sʼattend néanmoins à ce quʼil limite la sensibilité à basse fréquence des interféromètres gravitationnels de seconde génération. Nous avons mis en évidence des corrélations classiques induites par la pression de radiation entre deux faisceaux envoyés dans la même cavité de grande finesse dont un miroir est mobile. Notre dispositif à deux faisceaux permet de retrouver le bruit quantique même lorsque le bruit classique est prédominant, et a des applications dans les domaines des mesures de grande sensibilité et de lʼoptique quantique.
