Heat Pumping in Nanomechanical Systems
Abbreviated Journal Title
Phys. Rev. Lett.
We propose using a phonon pumping mechanism to transfer heat from a cold to a hot body using a propagating modulation of the medium connecting the two bodies. This phonon pump can cool nanomechanical systems without the need for active feedback. We compute the lowest temperature that this refrigerator can achieve.
