Abstract

The continuous spontaneous localization (CSL) model strives to describe the quantum-to-classical transition from the viewpoint of collapse models. However, its original formulation suffers from a fundamental inconsistency in that it is explicitly energy nonconserving. Fortunately, a dissipative extension to CSL has been recently formulated that solves such an energy-divergence problem. We compare the predictions of the dissipative and nondissipative CSL models when various optomechanical settings are used and contrast such predictions with available experimental data, thus building the corresponding exclusion plots.
