The optomechanics field of research has been gathering a lot of momentum during the last couple of years. Recent experimental results show that the field is finally entering the quantum era. In this context, we have worked to develop new and competitive optomechanical devices. We have also worked towards the generation and observation of ponderomotive squeezing and we have identified, and experimentally demonstrated, an optomechanical effect that can ease the achievement of this goal. Finally, we have developed a stabilization technique that have been instrumental for the success of two experiments: the implementation of the Wiener-Kolmogorov data analysis and the squeezing of a mechanical thermal oscillator.
