  • Small, out-of-equilibrium, and quantum systems defy simple thermodynamic expressions. Such systems are exemplified by molecular switches, which exchange heat with a bath and which can photoisomerize, or change conformation upon absorbing light. The likelihood of photoisomerization depends on kinetic details that couple the molecule's internal energetics with its interaction with the bath, hindering predictions. We derive simple, general bounds on the photoisomerization yield, using a… CONTINUE READING
