Over the last decade, rapid developments in quantum optomechanics have led to an increasing level of control of mechanical systems down to the quantum level using a variety of system architectures.
Possible applications range from quantum transducers, quantum memories and high-precision sensors to novel tests of the foundations of physics. In my talk, I will discuss recent developments in quantum optomechanics using trapped dielectric particles, the potential of using photonic crystals for particle trapping and control as well as developments towards future tests of the foundations of physics.
