A trapped atomic gas within an optical resonator serves as both a mechanical oscillator and a spin oscillator, represented by the collective degrees of freedom of the gas.

I will describe experiments that characterize the coupling between these collective quantum oscillators. Such spin-orbit coupling is obtained by parametrically coupling both oscillators to a single-mode driven optical resonator.
