Abstract

We present a "toy" classical model for sympathetic cooling of the neutral Brownian particle in the frame of robust thermodynamical approach. The cooling time is expressed with the parameters of the Brownian particle and the particles from the cooling reservoir. Qualitative and numerical estimations of the model confirm that the sympathetic cooling can be efficient for heavy neutral molecules and clusters. (C) 2011 American Institute of Physics.
