Mechanical PT symmetry in coupled optomechanical systems

Xun-Wei Xu, Yu-xi Liu, Chang-Pu Sun, Yong Li

We propose to observe mechanical PT symmetry in the coupled optomechanical systems. In order to provide gain to one mechanical resonator and equivalent amount of damp to another, we drive the two optical cavities with a blue and a red detuned laser fields respectively. After adiabatically eliminating the freedom of the cavity modes, we develop a formalism for describing mechanical PT-symmetric system. Moreover, we discuss the experimental feasibility of our scheme and show that the observation of mechanical PT-symmetric transition in the coupled optomechanical systems is within the reach of resent experiments.
