QTeQ strikes an Editors’ Suggestion for their latest paper in Phys. Rev. Lett.!!!
As a result of an international collaboration (involving ETH Zurich, the University of Vienna, the University of Sao Paulo, Universidade Federal do ABC, Chalmers, and the University of Cambridge), Alessandro, Gabriele and Mauro have published a paper in Phys. Rev. Lett. reporting on the assessment of entropy production from non-equilibrium quantum processes realised in an optomechanical system and an intra-cavity BEC one. The paper puts in place a theoretical framework for the observation of entropy production in Gaussian states developed as a result of the Sao Paulo–Belfast all-theory collaboration and embodies the first observation of entropy production in non-equilibrium mesoscopic quantum systems. Huge work done by former QTeQers Matteo Brunelli and Lorenzo Fusco, who worked hard to see these results published. Well done guys!!!
