Table of Contents

Thermodynamic fundamentals of fluorescent cooling; Theory of laser cooling; Experimental investigations and fundamental restrictions; Self-cooling of active elements of solid-state lasers; Laser cooling of solid-state information media of optical echo-processors; Problems of cooling solid-state quantum processors.

Description

Laser cooling is an important emerging technology in such areas as the cooling of semiconductors. The book examines and suggests solutions for a range of problems in the development of miniature solid-state laser refrigerators, self-cooling solid-state lasers and optical echo-processors. It begins by looking at the basic theory of laser cooling before considering such topics as self-cooling of active elements of solid-state lasers, laser cooling of solid-state information media of optical echo-processors, and problems of cooling solid-state quantum processors.

Laser Cooling of Solids is an important contribution to the development of compact laser-powered cryogenic refrigerators, both for the academic community and those in the microelectronics and other industries.
