Latest paper by the group of Prof. Frederico Brito on non-thermal engines using superconducting qubits

Hi everyone,

Check out the latest paper by Cleverson Cherubim and Prof. Frederico Brito in collaboration with Prof. Sebastian Deffner, on the implementation of a non-thermal quantum heat engine using superconducting qubits.

This work appeared as part of the specia issue of Entropy on Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics.

A resource theory for Maxwell’s demon’s

Hi everyone,

I’m here to publicize our latest paper, which was accepted on Quantum, on a resource theory for Maxwell’s demon’s:

https://arxiv.org/abs/1903.12629

We show that the set of resourceful states can be partitioned into 9 irreducible subsets, each with well defined (although not monotonic) temperatures. This, as we discuss, has dramatic consequences for Landauer’s principle.

Hope you enjoy!
All the best,

Gabriel Landi

Emergent platforms for quantum information processing – 15-17/04 @ IFUSP

Hi everyone,

We would like to advertise the workshop Emergent platforms for quantum information processing, that will take place at IFUSP-São Paulo between April 15-17 of 2019. The focus of the workshop will be on experimentalists from Brazil working in quantum information processing platforms. Our goal is that this workshop serve as an opportunity for getting together and discussing the advantages, limitations and prospects. We hope, with this, to call attention to the community in Brazil to the importance of experimental quantum information sciences.

The event’s official website is: http://www.fmt.if.usp.br/~platform/

The conference program will be available soon.

Organizers: Gabriel T. Landi (IFUSP), Luis Gregório Dias (IFUSP), Frederico Borges Brito (IFSC).

Anyone interested in participating is more than welcome to join. For more information contact Gabriel Landi at gtlandi@if.usp.br.
