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
