Parametrically coupled modes at low temperature or: What happens when you put a microwave in a refrigerator
Have you ever heard of a harmonic oscillator? This favorite topic of physics professors shows up just about everywhere in physics as a powerful and simple model to understand all kinds of phenomena. In this talk, I'll review some concepts about oscillators and talk about how ideas from the theory of coupled oscillators can be used to make useful and interesting electronic devices. In particular, I'll discuss some of my work at NIST using parametric interactions in superconducting circuits to control and measure microwave fields and mechanical motion with precision approaching quantum-mechanical limitations.
