Cold Damping of an Optically Levitated Nanoparticle to micro-Kelvin Temperatures

24 Dec 2018 Tebbenjohanns Felix Frimmer Martin Militaru Andrei Jain Vijay Novotny Lukas

We implement a cold damping scheme to cool one mode of the center-of-mass motion of an optically levitated nanoparticle in ultrahigh vacuum from room temperature to a record-low temperature of 100 micro-Kelvin. The measured temperature dependence on feedback gain and thermal decoherence rate is in excellent agreement with a parameter-free model... (read more)
