Cavity Cooling with a Hot Cavity

  • Vladan Vuletić


Cavity cooling of arbitrary particles by coherent scattering is significantly improved inside resonators with optical gain. The friction force arises from frequency-selective amplification of the radiation emitted by the particle. As possible implementations of active cavity cooling we discuss a laser below threshold and an injection-locked laser system.
