    • Quantum work and the thermodynamic cost of quantum measurements 

      Deffner, Sebastian; Paz, Juan Pablo; Zurek, Wojciech H. (American Physical Society (APS), 2016-07-07)
      Quantum work is usually determined from two projective measurements of the energy at the beginning and at the end of a thermodynamic process. However, this paradigm cannot be considered thermodynamically consistent as it ...
    • Quantum work distribution for a driven diatomic molecule 

      Leonard, Alison; Deffner, Sebastian (Elsevier, 2015-01-13)
      We compute the quantum work distribution for a driven Morse oscillator. To this end, we solve the time-dependent dynamics for a scale-invariant process, from which the exact expressions for the transition probabilities are ...
    • Quantum work statistics of charged Dirac particles in time-dependent fields 

      Deffner, Sebastian; Saxena, Avadh (American Physical Society (APS), 2015-09-28)
      The quantum Jarzynski equality is an important theorem of modern quantum thermodynamics. We show that the Jarzynski equality readily generalizes to relativistic quantum mechanics described by the Dirac equation. After ...
    • Quantum work statistics of linear and nonlinear parametric oscillators 

      Deffner, Sebastian; Abah, Obinna; Lutz, Eric (Elsevier, 2010-06-18)
      We consider the nonequilibrium work distribution of a quantum oscillator with modulated angular frequency. We examine the discrete-to-continuous transition of the distribution as the temperature and the degree of nonadiabaticity ...
    • Quantum Zeno effect in correlated qubits 

      Šafránek, Dominik; Deffner, Sebastian
      Near term quantum hardware promises to achieve quantum supremacy. From a quantum dynamical point of view, however, it is not unambiguously clear whether fundamental peculiarities of quantum physics permit any arbitrary ...

      We present the results of a radio variability study of the gravitational lens PMN J1838-3427. Our motivation was to determine the Hubble constant by measuring the time delay between variations of the two quasar images. We ...
    • Radio–gamma-ray connection and spectral evolution in 4C +49.22 (S4 1150+49): the Fermi, Swift and Planck view 

      Cutini, S.; Ciprini, S.; Orienti, M.; Tramacere, A.; D'Ammando, F.; Verrecchia, F.; Polenta, G.; Carrasco, L.; D'Elia, V.; Giommi, P.; González-Nuevo, J.; Grandi, P.; Harrison, D.; Hays, E.; Larsson, S.; Lähteenmäki, A.; León-Tavares, J.; López-Caniego, M.; Natoli, P.; Ojha, R.; Partridge, B.; Porras, A.; Reyes, L.; Recillas, E.; Torresi, E.

      The Large Area Telescope on board the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope detected a strong γ-ray flare on 2011 May 15 from a source identified as 4C +49.22, a flat spectrum radio quasar (FSRQ) also known as S4 1150+49. This ...
    • Rapid adiabatic gating for capacitively coupled quantum dot hybrid qubits without barrier control 

      Setser, A. A.; Kestner, J. P. (2018)
      We theoretically examine the capacitive coupling between two quantum dot hybrid qubits, each consisting of three electrons in a double quantum dot, as a function of the energy detuning of the double dot potentials. We ...

      Georganopoulos, Markos; Meyer, Eileen T.; Perlman, Eric S. (MDPI, 2016-11-23)
      Our understanding of the physics of kpc-scale quasar jets had seemed to converge to a paradigm in which these jets are as highly relativistic on the kpc scale as they are on sub-pc scales close to the central black hole. ...
