QTF Centre of Excellence of Finland Creating Quantum Thermodynamic Nanodevices

By IQT News posted 20 Jan 2020

(Phys.org) One of the open questions in quantum research is how heat and thermodynamics coexist with quantum physics. This research field of quantum thermodynamics is one of the areas Professor Jukka Pekola, the leader of the QTF Centre of Excellence of the Academy of Finland, has worked on in his career. “This field has been dominated by theory, and only now are important experiments are starting to emerge,” says Professor Pekola. His research group has set about creating quantum thermodynamic nanodevices that can solve open questions experimentally.
Quantum states, like those governing the qubits that power quantum computers, interact with their surrounding world, and these interactions are what quantum thermodynamics deals with.
