Steady state entanglement beyond thermal limits

Francesco Tacchino

University of Pavia

Francesco Tacchino received his B.Sc. in Physics (2014) and his M.Sc. in Physical Sciences (2016) from the University of Pavia, Italy, and he is currently graduate student at the same university, where he works on quantum science and condensed matter physics.His research focuses on quantum optics, open quantum systems theory and phenomenology, quantum computing and quantum simulations, with particular attention to superconducting and hybrid platforms and to near-term applications. He is interested in expanding the connections between fundamental physics and technology, by developing models of cavity and circuit QED devices and investigating the quantum thermodynamics of driven-dissipative systems.


Classical engines turn thermal resources into work, which is maximized for reversible operations. The quantum realm has expanded the range of useful operations beyond energy conversion, and incoherent resources beyond thermal... [ view full abstract ]
