Game of Light and Heat

Thursday September 7, 2017
11:00 am

 Presenter:  Dr. Mansoor Sheik-Bahae, OSE General Chair and Distinguished Professor of Physics and Astronomy, UNM
 Series:  OSE Seminars
 Abstract:  This talk concerns the manipulation of temperature in matter using coherent laser light. After introducing the general concepts, I present our most recent progress on solid-state laser cooling that has led to the development of the world’s first solid-state cryocooler at UNM. Next, the extension of this concept in realizing “athermal” lasers or lasers that do not produce any heat or even self-cool will be presented. Finally, laser cooling, and thermal management in semiconductors and semiconductor disk lasers will be discussed.
 Location:  Room 190, Physics & Astronomy
