Workshop at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light (Erlangen, Germany) - July 8-10, 2019

Quantum thermodynamics, i.e. the thermodynamics applied to small quantum systems rather than macroscopic fluids, has become a hot topic joining forces from quantum optics, information theory, condensed matter, and statistical mechanics. At the same time, optomechanical systems, trapped ions, and superconducting circuits are being established as versatile experimental platforms to probe the principles of thermodynamics on the level of a few quanta and put quantum models of thermal machines into practice.

This workshop aims at bringing together the expertise from the theoretical and the experimental side to initiate discussions and ideas for experimental realizations of quantum thermal machines and thermally driven processes, as well as for new theoretical methods to describe the underlying open quantum dynamics.
