Quantum heat engines

Dr. Wolfgang Niedenzu
Weizmann Institute of Science, Department of Chemical Physics, Rehovot, Israel

Heat engines were the basis of the industrial revolution and are still indispensable in our modern world. Originally designed as macroscopic machines that convert heat into mechanical work, the question naturally arises whether their operational principles can also be applied to the quantum domain and whether their performance can benefit from possible quantum advantages. In this overview talk I will present recent theoretical and experimental progress on quantum heat engines.
