Entropy Special Issue: Energy, Entropy and Information in Nano- and Quantum-Electronics
June 20, 2019 - March 31, 2020 , Entropy

Due to their high degree of control, small electronic systems provide ideal candidates to investigate thermodynamics on the nanoscale. In particular, all ingredients required to investigate heat and energy transport, as well as the thermodynamics of information, are available. This Special Issue aims at providing a focus on modern developments in the highly exciting topics related to energy, entropy, and information in nano- and quantum-electronics.

Special Issue 'Experimental Studies of Mesocopic Thermodynamics' - Entropy
Oct. 1, 2019 - May 31, 2020 , Entropy

We invite submissions on a broad range of topics, including experimental studies of fluctuation relations, micro-engines, heat transport and information thermodynamics. Both theoretical and experimental studies of advanced techniques including bath engineering, statistical analysis of noisy systems, and physical analogues of noisy biological systems are very welcome. Finally, we invite proposals on realistic and novel methods to study the thermodynamics of quantum systems.

Doctoral student in Nanoscale Quantum Thermodynamics
Sept. 1, 2019 , Physics Department, Lund University

The doctoral student is expected to perform theoretical work in quantum thermodynamics, focusing on electronic properties of nanosystems. It will consist of developing theoretical models for and describing transport and fluctuations of energy and charge in different nanosystems. The work will consist of both analytical calculations and numerical simulations, employing tools such as scattering theory, quantum master equations and different path integral approaches.
