Openness as a resource: Accessing new quantum states with dissipation
Jan. 31, 2022 - Feb. 4, 2022 , Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems , Dresden

Openness allows for mechanisms such as spontaneous relaxation and depolarization to disturb the dynamics of quantum systems and interfere with their, otherwise unitary, evolution. Yet openness is not exclusively a nuisance, it can also be used as a resource: Dissipative mechanisms can be employed to fight decoherence and thus stabilize quantum states which otherwise do not survive in the asymptotic limit. Alike, those can be utilized to convert heat stemming from a dissipative environment int

CECAM Open Quantum
Jan. 17, 2022 - Jan. 19, 2022 , online

The online version of the workshop will comprise two invited talks each day, followed by a panel discussion where the audience can also participate. For the benefit of the community, we have decided to focus on one well-defined theme each day. These are: 1. Computational development of open quantum systems: Beyond Markovian master equations 2. Quantum thermodynamics and heat engines -- are they good for anything? 3. New directions (quantum AI, thermodynamics of many-body systems etc.)
