Paper Abstract

Optical refrigerator is based on an optical heat removal from a cooling element by satisfying conditions of anti-Stokes fluorescence. This imposes a challenge of optically shielding a payload from the anti-Stokes radiation. Therefore, a link between the cooling element and a payload (the thermal link) has to exhibit high thermal conductivity while blocking the fluorescence and scattered laser light in a non-absorbing manner. In this paper we examine photon blockade structures ranging from textured kinks to hybrid systems involving light-shedding geometries and semiconductor-based epitaxially-grown distributed Bragg mirrors.
