Energy-localization-enhanced ground-state cooling of a mechanical resonator from room temperature in optomechanics using a gain cavity

Energy-localization-enhanced ground-state cooling of a mechanical resonator from room temperature... When a gain system is coupled to a loss system, the energy usually flows from the gain system to the loss one. We here present a counterintuitive theory for the ground-state cooling of a mechanical resonator in an optomechanical system via a gain cavity. The energy flows first from the mechanical resonator into the loss cavity and then into the gain cavity and finally localizes there. The energy localization in the gain cavity dramatically enhances the cooling rate of the mechanical resonator. Moreover, we show that an unconventional optical spring effect, e.g., a giant frequency shift and optically induced damping of the mechanical resonator, can be realized. Those feature a precooling-free ground-state cooling, i.e., the mechanical resonator in thermal excitation at room temperature can directly be cooled to its ground state. This cooling approach has potential application in fundamental tests of quantum physics without complicated cryogenic setups. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review A American Physical Society (APS)

Abstract

When a gain system is coupled to a loss system, the energy usually flows from the gain system to the loss one. We here present a counterintuitive theory for the ground-state cooling of a mechanical resonator in an optomechanical system via a gain cavity. The energy flows first from the mechanical resonator into the loss cavity and then into the gain cavity and finally localizes there. The energy localization in the gain cavity dramatically enhances the cooling rate of the mechanical resonator. Moreover, we show that an unconventional optical spring effect, e.g., a giant frequency shift and optically induced damping of the mechanical resonator, can be realized. Those feature a precooling-free ground-state cooling, i.e., the mechanical resonator in thermal excitation at room temperature can directly be cooled to its ground state. This cooling approach has potential application in fundamental tests of quantum physics without complicated cryogenic setups.
