Description

We consider the controlled transfer of light between the two sides of an optical cavity containing a moveable membrane in the middle. The transfer process is analogous to STIRAP in atomic/laser physics. The system also presents some fundamental issues in cavity-QED and optomechanics because of the time-dependent boundary conditions. In particular, we compare and contrast Maxwell dynamics (2nd order in time) with Schrodinger dynamics (1st order in time).
