Today Janet speaks at the City University New York (CUNY)’s Graduate Center, where she will be giving an introduction to quantum thermodynamics.
Zoe Holmes’ paper on the work extracted to an optomechanical membrane when mixing two partially distinguishable photon gases has been published today in New Journal of Physics https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1367-2630/abc602/meta
On 15 October 2020 Janet gave a talk at the Quantum Thermodynamics of Non-equilibrium systems Workshop (QTDNEQ) on “Thermodynamic signatures of distinguishability in an optomechanical setting”.
The talk slides are here and the papers are here and here.
