Yauhen Sachkou

Yauhen was a postgraduate student at the University of Queensland, undertaking a PhD with CI Bowen. He is now a research fellow with CI Fedorov.

His PhD research sought to extend quantum optomechanics to superfluids-quantum fluids that exist at temperatures close to absolute zero and exhibit macroscopic quantum behaviour. The most general goal of his project was to achieve the quantum control of superfluid motion using light. Optical micro-cavities allow strong light-based control, cooling and measurement of the motion of nm-thick superfluid films.
