Abstract

The concept of radiation cooling with π pulses is presented and quantified with a theoretical analysis. Numerical analysis of π-pulse cooling on the hydrogen Lyman-α transition is presented as an example. The cooling rate and limiting temperature are discussed and compared with steady-state radiation cooling.
