Immersing carbon nanotubes in cold atomic gases — •Polina Mironova1, Carsten Th. Weiss2,3, and Reinhold Walser11Technische Universität Darmstadt, Darmstadt, Deutschland — 2Universität Ulm, Ulm, Deutschland — 3Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen, Tübingen, Deutschland

We investigate the sympathetic relaxation of a free-standing, vibrating carbon nanotube that is mounted on an atom-chip and is immersed in a cloud of ultra-cold atoms. Gas atoms colliding with the nanotube excite phonons via a Casimir-Polder potential. We use Fermi's Golden Rule to estimate the relaxation rate for the relevant experimental parameters. Based on currently available experimental data, we identify the relaxation rates as a function of atom density and temperature that are required for sympathetic ground state cooling of carbon nanotubes.
