One of the most effective methods for cooling micro and nano devices to ultra low temperatures is the sideband method. Currently, this approach is being studied experimentally and theoretically. Theoretical results that relate to this method correspond to the case of the interaction of an electromagnetic field with a micro or nano resonator through radiation pressure. Obviously, if you choose a charged micro or nano resonator, the interaction will be different. In this paper, this case is…

Analytical wave function of an atomic electron under the action of a powerful ultrashort electromagnetic field pulse.

An equation is obtained that is similar to the Schrödinger equation for the fields under consideration, but which takes into the account relativistic effects in powerful spatially inhomogeneous fields of USPs.

A method for fast, high-fidelity quantum information transfer between resonators is obtained by varying the strength of the coupling between the two resonators over a time on the order of the period of the mechanical resonator.

Quantum theory of cavity-assisted sideband cooling of mechanical motion.

It is found that reaching the quantum limit of arbitrarily small phonon numbers requires going into the good-cavity (resolved phonon sideband) regime where the cavity linewidth is much smaller than the mechanical frequency and the corresponding cavity detuning.
