Quantum Refrigerators and the Iii-law of Thermodynamics


Quantum thermodynamics addresses the emergence of thermodynamical laws from quantum mechanics. The III-law of thermodynamics has been mostly ignored. There are seemingly two independent formulation of the third law of thermodynamics, both originally stated by Nernst. The first is known as Nernst heat theorem, which is purely static, and implies that the… (More)
