Quantum measurements proceed by the establishment of correlations between the system being measured, and the meter performing the measurement. We use measurement-based feedback to distill such quantum correlations resulting from the interferometric position measurement of a nanomechanical oscillator. We also identify the role of "feedback back-action" in deteriorating the efficiency of this procedure. Finally, we use feedback to control another form of such correlations-optical squeezing.
