Efficient optomechanical cooling in one-dimensional interferometers

Efficient optomechanical cooling in one-dimensional interferometers
We present a scattering model which enables us to describe the mechanical force, including the velocity dependent component, exerted by light on polarizable massive objects in a general one-dimensional optical system. We show that the light field in an interferometer can be very sensitive to the velocity of a moving scatterer. We construct a new efficient cooling scheme, ‘external cavity cooling’, in which the scatterer, that can be an atom or a moving micromirror, is spatially separated from the cavity.

Abstract

We present a scattering model which enables us to describe the mechanical force, including the velocity dependent component, exerted by light on polarizable massive objects in a general one-dimensional optical system. We show that the light field in an interferometer can be very sensitive to the velocity of a moving scatterer. We construct a new efficient cooling scheme, ‘external cavity cooling’, in which the scatterer, that can be an atom or a moving micromirror, is spatially separated from the cavity.
