Shortcuts to Adiabaticity in Driven Open Quantum Systems: Balanced Gain and Loss and Non-Markovian Evolution

A universal scheme is introduced to speed up the dynamics of a driven open quantum system along a prescribed trajectory of interest and superadiabatic cooling, heating, and isothermal strokes for a two-level system are engineer.

High-Efficiency Free Energy Estimates Based on Variational Shortcuts to Isothermality

The mean work in an isothermal process is widely acknowledged as an accurate estimator of the free energy difference, but the high time cost limits its practical applications. Here, enlightened by



From quantum heat engines to laser cooling: Floquet theory beyond the Born–Markov approximation

We combine the formalisms of Floquet theory and full counting statistics with a Markovian embedding strategy to access the dynamics and thermodynamics of a periodically driven thermal machine beyond

Swift heat transfer by fast-forward driving in open quantum systems

Typically, time-dependent thermodynamic protocols need to run asymptotically slowly in order to avoid dissipative losses. By adapting ideas from counter-diabatic driving and Floquet engineering to

Universal Work Fluctuations During Shortcuts to Adiabaticity by Counterdiabatic Driving.

A fundamental inequality is derived that relates nonequilibrium work fluctuations to the operation time and quantifies the thermodynamic cost of CD in both critical and noncritical systems.

Speeding up a quantum refrigerator via counterdiabatic driving

We study the application of a counterdiabatic driving (CD) technique to enhance the thermodynamic efficiency and power of a quantum Otto refrigerator based on a superconducting qubit coupled to two

Performance of a quantum heat engine at strong reservoir coupling.

Exploiting a collective coordinate mapping, system-reservoir correlations are incorporated into a consistent thermodynamic analysis, thus circumventing the usual restriction to weak coupling and vanishing correlations.

Boosting work characteristics and overall heat-engine performance via shortcuts to adiabaticity: quantum and classical systems.

It is shown that the use of shortcuts, which directly enhances the engine output power, can also increase the heat-engine efficiency substantially, in both quantum and classical regimes.

Slow Dynamics and Thermodynamics of Open Quantum Systems.

We develop a perturbation theory of quantum (and classical) master equations with slowly varying parameters, applicable to systems which are externally controlled on a time scale much longer than

Trade-Off Between Speed and Cost in Shortcuts to Adiabaticity.

The speed with which a quantum system can be driven when employing transitionless quantum driving is studied to establish a rigorous link between this speed, the quantum speed limit, and the (energetic) cost of implementing such a shortcut to adiabaticity.

Out-of-equilibrium operation of a quantum heat engine

Realistic quantum heat engines are operated at finite cycle times and thus represent open quantum systems in non-equilibrium. Here, their full time evolution including control of both the work medium
