Video "Cavity cooling of a silicon nanoparticle" was featured for the APS physics-meeting
04. Mar 2014 — Peter Asenbaum, member of the VCQ, was featured with his Video "Cavity cooling of a silicon nanoparticle" for the APS-meeting. The APS March meeting had over 9.000 invited and contributed abstract presentations - his video was one out of twelve. The Video: The animation of recorded data shows a nanoparticle traveling through the light field of an optical resonator. The refractive index of the moving particle modulates the intensity of the standing light wave. This time dependent optical potential leads to a reduction of the particle's horizontal velocity while passing through.
