Special Issue on “Optomechanical Systems for Fundamental Physics”

Optomechanical systems represent an exceptional tool for sensing weak effects, making them ideal for addressing numerous fundamental questions at the forefront of physics. The versatility of the light–matter interaction allows devising a wide spectrum of optomechanical devices, from atomic clouds and microscale sensors, to the large mirrors of LIGO, thus enabling tailored experiments to probe a vast range of physical phenomena, from the quantum-to-classical transition to gravitational wave physics.

Particularly interesting is the field of quantum optomechanics, where genuinely quantum features play a central role and the description of the system . In this context, the coherent manipulation of the center-of-mass motion of massive resonators presents a series of opportunities to explore the foundations of physics in novel experimental regimes.

This Special Edition of the journal Entropy aims to provide visibility to novel applications of optomechanical systems for fundamental applications, and it is open for submissions of unpublished, original research as well as comprehensive reviews on specific subfields.

Special Issue on “Analogue Gravitational Dynamics”

Analogue gravity models provide a powerful test-bed for simulating in condensed-matter systems the propagation of fields on curved spacetime geometries and related phenomena, such as, e.g., Hawking radiation, superradiance, and cosmological particle production. It has been recently realized that when the first nonlinear corrections (backreaction) are taken into account, some of these models can be generalized to give rise also to a kind of gravitational dynamics.

The special issue of Applied Sciences on “Analogue Gravity Dynamics” is intended to collect contributions aimed at exploring this side of the analogy, i.e., focusing on condensed-matter systems and emergent analogue gravitational dynamics, both at the “Newtonian” and “relativistic” levels.
