Abstract
The micro mechanism of anti-Stokes fluorescent cooling was investigated on molecular or ionic scale. A new conception of single molecule-photon cryoco oler (SMPC) was given, and the smallest cryocooler in the world was predict ed. We described SMPC and its running principle in detail. The quantum tran sition processes of SMPC and the largest cooling coefficient that SMPC can get in an optical transition were given. Also we studied the random propert y of SMPC in cooling processes. The thermodynamic behavior of single Yb3+ i on as a photon cryocooler was imitated.
