Abstract
A new method is analyzed for 3-D cooling of solids based on near-resonant, stimulated Raman scattering on a narrowband transition together with optical pumping on a broadband transition. Estimates of achievable cooling rates indicate that Raman cooling offers significant improvement over anti-Stkes fluorescence cooling at cryogenic temperatures and should enable the attainment of sub-Kelvin termperatures, starting from ambient conditions in bulk samples. Also the method is not restricted to ions with small Stokes shifts, and should therefore lead to diversification of the material platforms used for optical refrigeration.
