Abstract

We propose a novel adiabatic cooling scheme particularly adapted to microwave cavity QED situations where it is desirable to avoid the normal damping mechanism, spontaneous emission. It exploits the inevitable cavity losses, and the concomittant decrease in the gradient force, to irreversibly dispose of the atomic center of mass energy.
