Non-equilibrium statistical physics for small quantum systems: Transport, fluctuations and engineered devices

13.07.2018, 14:00

Speaker: Prof. Bijay Agarwalla, IISER-Pune, India

I will talk about two different aspects of nonequilibrium statistical physics:
1) Engineered light-matter open quantum systems and microscopic principles for photon amplification.
2) A brief overview of quantum transport including universal fluctuation relations, thermodynamic uncertainty and effects of electron-phonon interaction on charge transport.

Time, Place: Friday, 13th July, 14:00 h, Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, Seminar Room A.1.500, Staudtstr. 2, 91058 Erlangen
