### Entangling the ro-vibrational modes of a macroscopic mirror using radiation pressure

Abstract:

We consider the dynamics of a vibrating and rotating end-mirror of an optical Fabry-P{\'erot} cavity that can sustain Laguerre-Gaussian modes. We demonstrate theoretically that since the intra-cavity field carries linear as well as angular momentum, radiation pressure can create bipartite entanglement between a vibrational and a rotational mode of the mirror. Further we show that the ratio of vibrational and rotational couplings with the radiation field can easily be adjusted experimentally, ...
