Effects of epitaxial lift-off on interface recombination and laser cooling in GaInP/GaAs heterostructures
Photoluminescence of GaAs passivated with GaInP is studied over the temperature range 7–450K. Different photocarrier recombination mechanisms are identified as the temperature changes. An interfaceExpand

Resonant cavity-enhanced absorption for optical refrigeration
A 20-fold increase over the single path optical absorption is demonstrated with a low loss medium placed in a resonant cavity. This is applied to laser cooling of ytterbium-doped fluorozirconateExpand

Differential luminescence thermometry in semiconductor laser cooling
We demonstrate a non-contact, spectroscopic technique to measure the temperature change of semiconductors with very high precision. A temperature resolution of less than 100 μK has been obtained withExpand

Fast differential luminescence thermometry
Differential luminescence thermometry (DLT) allows non-contact method of measuring temperature by timedifferencing luminescence spectra emitted from the material in study. Here, we present aExpand

Nanogap experiments for laser cooling: a progress report
One of the challenges of laser cooling a semiconductor is the typically high index of refraction (greater than 3), which limits efficient light output of the upconverted photon. This challenge isExpand

Sensitive ultrashort pulse chirp measurement
The chirp of an ultrashort laser pulse can be extracted with high accuracy from a modified spectrum auto-interferometric correlation waveform by using a new time domain algorithm that allows signalExpand

Cooling of Yb:YLF using cavity enhanced resonant absorption
Using a cavity resonant absorption scheme we demonstrate record laser cooling for the rare-earth doped crystalline solid Yb:YLF. A temperature drop of nearly 70 degrees is obtained with respect toExpand

Effect of high carrier density on luminescence thermometry in semiconductors
We present a brief analysis of laser cooling in semiconductor quantum wells with emphasis on a previous experiment that gave evidence for local cooling. This work is re-examined in the context ofExpand
