Quantum thermodynamics.
Alexia Auffeves, Institute Néel

Quantum thermodynamics is an exploding topic lying at the boundary between quantum information, quantum open systems, quantum foundations and stochastic thermodynamics. I will review the main challenges of the field, as well recent experimental proposals and realizations.

Lecture I: Time arrow and entropy production in quantum thermodynamics

Lecture II: Quantum information thermodynamics: From quantum Maxwell demons to measurement driven quantum engines

Lecture III: Prospects on experimental platforms. Optomechanics vs circuit QED.
