Energetics of Forced Thermal Ratchet


Molecular motors are known to have the high efficiency of energy transformation in the presence of thermal fluctuation[1]. Motivated by the surprising fact, recent studies of thermal ratchet models[2] are showing how and when work should be extracted from non-equilibrium fluctuations[3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]. One of the important finding was brought by… (More)
