We present a simple strategy for constructing an information ratchet or memory-tape model of Maxwell's demon, from a feedback-controlled model. We illustrate our approach by converting the Annby-Andersson feedback-controlled double quantum dot model [Phys. Rev. B 101, 165404 (2020)2469-995010.1103/PhysRevB.101.165404] to a memory-tape model. We use the underlying network structure of the original model to design a set of bit interaction rules for the information ratchet. The new model is solved…

It is shown that a ratchet must have memory to most effectively leverage structure and correlation in its environment, and achieving the IPSL bounds on the amount of work a ratchets can extract from its environment is investigated, discovering that finite-state, optimal ratcheted can go well beyond these bounds by utilizing their own infinite "negentropy”.
