Quantum transport in optomechanical arrays with disorder — •Thales Figueiredo Roque1,2 and Florian Marquardt1,3 — 1University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Erlangen, Germany — 2University of Campinas, Campinas, Brazil — 3Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, Erlangen, Germany
Optomechanical arrays consist of lattices of optical and vibrational modes coupled together by radiation forces. Their effective band structure for photons and phonons can be tuned via a laser drive, creating a versatile and novel model system for many condensed-matter phenomena. In this work, we study the effects of disorder on quantum transport in 2D optomechanical arrays. This will be essential for upcoming first experimental realizations of optomechanical arrays in the near future.
