# Radiative cooling induced by time-symmetry breaking in periodically driven systems

@article{Messina2021RadiativeCI, title={Radiative cooling induced by time-symmetry breaking in periodically driven systems}, author={Riccardo Messina and Annika Ott and Christoph Kathmann and Svend-Age Biehs and Philippe Ben-Abdallah}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2021}, volume={103} }

We theoretically study the thermal relaxation of many-body systems under the action of oscillating external fields. When the magnitude or the orientation of a field is modulated around values where the pairwise heat-exchange conductances depend non-linearly on this field, we demonstrate that the time symmetry is broken during the evolution of temperatures over a modulation cycle. We predict that this asymmetry enables a pumping of heat which can be used to cool down faster the system. This…
