Phys. Rev. A – Frictionless Atom Cooling

Dionisis Stefanatos lead authors the accepted paper in Physical Review A regarding a time optimal approach to solving the problem of frictionless atom cooling in harmonic traps.  In this work we permit the trap frequency to take on imaginary values for transient time intervals, which leads to a modified formulation and solution of this problem.  [...]
