  "description": "<p>By spectrally hole burning an inhomogeneously broadened ensemble of ions while applying a controlled<br>\nperturbation, one can obtain spectral holes that are functionalized for maximum sensitivity to different<br>\nperturbations. We propose to use such hole-burned structures for the dispersive optical interaction with<br>\nrare-earth-ion dopants whose frequencies are sensitive to crystal strain due to the bending motion of a crystal<br>\ncantilever. A quantitative analysis shows that good optical sensitivity to the bending motion is obtained if a<br>\nmagnetic-field gradient is applied across the crystal during hole burning and that the resulting optomechanical<br>\ncoupling strength is sufficient for observing quantum features such as zero-point vibrations.</p>",
