Quantum control of many-body quantum thermal devices
This PhD studentship will theoretically design many-body quantum thermal devices operating in a finite-time using analytical and numerical many-body techniques. This will involve employing tools from condensed matter theory, nonequilibrium statistical physics, quantum information and quantum measurement to understand and enhance the machines performance. Moreover, the experimental realization will be addressed in close collaboration with European/UK experimental groups. The project provides versatile opportunities for learning and personal development and for visiting/working with international collaborators on quantum technologies.
