Cooling Schemes

Almost all systems that manipulate quantum information or in which quantum effects are important have to be cooled to the vicinity of their ground states. As the motivation to bring more and more systems to the quantum regime grows the demand for better and faster cooling schemes increases.
We believe that by using innovative cooling schemes, three very important goals which are: cooling of a large ion chain, the creation of BEC without evaporating cooling and cooling of a macroscopic object to its ground state would be eventually reached. We are actively working on proposing new and more sophisticated cooling schemes. We have a few running and past projects in the group concerning the cooling schemes of trapped particles:

Stark Shift cooling

Robust cooling

Superfast cooling

Magnetic gradients
