Abstract

We investigate theoretically a novel optical technique to cool atomic or molecular species without a closed transition: a particle in front of a mirror illuminated by an off-resonant light beam. The interaction between the particle, the pump and the time-delayed reflected pump results in a net loss of energy from the particle to the field and therefore cooling. Cooling rates depending on particle position and coupling parameters are obtained by an analytical perturbative approach. Finally, we present a semiclassical computational model incorporating momentum diffusion, which will eventually allow us to predict steady-state temperatures.
