Measuring the statistics of work in quantum systems

Paolo Solinas

Institure CNR-SPIN

Paolo Solinas is a researcher at the SPIN Institute of the CNR in Genova (Italy). He did his PhD at the University of Genova (Italy) under the supervision of Prof. N. Zanghì and Prof. P. Zanardi. After a postdoc in Paris (France) at the LPTMC (Laboratory of Theoretical Physics of Condensed Matter) and at Aalto University in Helsinki (Finland), he returned to Genova with a researcher position. His research interests include different subjects related to the quantum technologies including geometric and topological quantum information, open quantum system and superconducting implementation of quantum devices.


Introduction The concept of work and heat are two cornerstones of classical physics. Work allows us to answer to a fundamental and practical question: how much energy does a system need to perform a specific task? In... [ view full abstract ]
