Hiroshi Yamaguchi, NTT Basic Research Laboratories

Researchers of NTT Basic Research Laboratories, in a collaboration with Tohoku University, demonstrated a novel method of laser cooling of mechanical resonators, where the thermal vibration can be damped simply by applying a laser light without using any optical cavity.
