The 5th Quantum Thermodynamics Conference is starting today in Oxford.
Sai and Janet’s overview article on the field of Quantum Thermodynamics has appeared in Contemporary Physics today. http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/00107514.2016.1201896
Welcome to Hamed Mohammady, who will start his postdoc this week in the Quantum Non-equilibrium group!
Janet’s paper with Philipp Kammerlander reporting on how, and how much, additional thermodynamic work can be drawn from quantum systems that have coherences has been published in Scientific Reports. (https://www.nature.com/articles/srep22174)
Welcome to Harry Miller, who will start his PhD this week in the Quantum Non-equilibrium group!
The IoP has awarded the Bates Prize 2015, commemorating Sir David Bates FRS, to Janet for pioneering contributions to quantum information theory and its applications to quantum thermodynamics. (http://www.iop.org/activity/groups/subject/qqq/bates_prize/page_65535.html)
Our paper reporting on how the non-equilibrium dynamics of light-levitated nanospheres can provide information about temperatures at the nanoscale has been published in Nature Nanotechnology and made the cover! (http://www.nature.com/nnano/journal/v9/n6/covers/index.html)
