Micro-mechanical non-classicality? (or the difference between squeezing and an orange juice)
I will provide a broad overview of the progresses accomplished so far towards the achievement of quantumness at the mesoscopic level, verging towards the macroscopic world. I will concentrate explicitly on the example provided by massive mechanical oscillators coupled to light, so as to show that robust non-classicality in such a context is indeed achievable. I will finally draw a path that, in my opinion, would lead us to a scalable network of non-linearly coupled quantum nodes, which will offer nice possibilities for quantum simulation of quantum many-body phenomena.
