Nanomechanical resonators enable fundamental studies into the hybridization of different physical quantities, such as light and mechanical motion. Such hybrid systems form a promising platform to implement measurements operating at the limits imposed by quantum uncertainty and quantum non-demolition measurements. In this project, we study coupling of qubits to an optomechanical system. Qubits can through their nonlinear character generate very large enhancement of the radiation pressure interaction between light and matter, as well as boost optical cooling of the mechanical resonator
