Paper Abstract

Various methods leading to potential improvement of laser cooling in semiconductors are considered. It is shown that using combination of bandgap engineering in electronic domain and photonic bandgap engineering one can attain a factor of few improvement in efficiency provided the nonradiative efficiency does not get affected.
