Abstract
We have achieved cryogenic optical refrigeration with a record low temperature in optical refrigeration by cooling 5% wt.Yb:YLF crystal to 119K ±1K (~-154 C) at 1=1020 nm corresponding to its E4-E5 Stark manifold resonance with an estimated cooling power of 18 mW. This demonstration confirms the predicted minimum achievable temperature (MAT). Further cooling is achievable as shown by measurements of a doping study where a 10% wt. Yb:YLF crystal with reduced parasitic heating has predicted cooling below 100K (~-173K).
