Outline

Understanding and controlling mesoscpoic systems, which are larger than single molecules and smaller than bulk materials, are still a challenging task. In this project, we explore a laser-trapped nanoparticles levitated in vacuum as a new mescoscopic system. We develop the technique of controlling both their center-of-mass motion and their internal states and realize a laser refrigerator, that is useful for a quantum control in solids and measurements using nanoparticles.
