Abstract We give a theoretical description of a coherently driven optomechanical system with a single added photon. The photon source is modeled as a cavity that initially contains one photon and that is irreversibly coupled to the opto-mechanical system. We show that the probability for the additional photon to be emitted by the opto-mechanical cavity will exhibit oscillations under a Lorentzian envelope, when the driven interaction with the mechanical resonator is strong enough. Our scheme provides a feasible route towards quantum state transfer between optical photons and micromechanical resonators. © IOP Publishing Ltd and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft.
