Terahertz cavity cooling for cuprate superconductors

Abstract:

Optical cooling is a well-established class of methods for reducing the temperature of a wide variety of atomic, mechanical and condensed matter systems. In this thesis, we demonstrate that it may be possible to cool the fluctuations of the Josephson phase in a cuprate single crystal by the application of coherent terahertz radiation. Such cooling strengthens the superconducting state as measured by switching current distribution, and may lead to an enhancement of the transition temper...
