Paper Abstract

As of today, one of the milestones in quantum theory testing is obtaining of macroscopic quantum states, for which very low temperatures are necessary. Such low energies can be present during optical and optomechanical cooling of nanostructures. Here we investigate the deep cooling of ytterbium-doped fluorite nanocrystal via coherent population transfer techniques. We consider two main approaches towards coherent transfer, namely, Raman pulses and stimulated Raman adiabatic passage, and search for the most efficient cooling parameters. Optimization of the process of deep nanocrystal cooling opens up possibilities for various applications and technologies.
