Comparing resolved-sideband cooling and measurement-based feedback cooling on an equal footing: Analytical results in the regime of ground-state cooling

Jacobs, Kurt; Nurdin, Hendra; Strauch, Frederick W; James, Matthew


We show that in the regime of ground-state cooling, simple expressions can be derived for the performance of resolved-sideband cooling—an example of coherent feedback control—and optimal linear measurement-based feedback cooling for a harmonic oscillator. These results are valid to leading order in the small parameters that define this regime. They provide insight into the origins of the limitations of coherent and measurement-based feedback for linear systems, and the relationship between...[Show more]
