Pioneering Laser Cooling Method Achieves Record-Breaking Ultra-Cold Silica

Pioneering Laser Cooling Method Achieves Record-Breaking Ultra-Cold Silica Researchers from Germany’s Fraunhofer IOF Institute and the University of New Mexico have made a historic breakthrough, successfully cooling silica glass by an astonishing 67 K. This feat, detailed in Optics Express, was accomplished using a novel laser cooling technique, a process traditionally associated with heating. The method, […]
