Shanhe Su,∗ †Zhiyuan Lin,∗ and Jincan Chen† Department of Physics, Xiamen University, Xiamen 361005, People’s Republic of China Abstract A quantum engine fueled by quantum measurement is proposed. Under the finite-time adiabatic driving regime, the conversion of heat to work is realized without the compression and expansion of the resonance frequency. The work output, quantum heat, and efficiency are derived, highlighting the important role of the thermal divergence recently reappearing in open…

Extracting Work from Quantum Measurement in Maxwell's Demon Engines.
This work proposes a new type of quantum Maxwell's demon engine where work is directly extracted from the measurement channel, such that no heat bath is required and shows that in the Zeno regime of frequent measurements, memory erasure costs eventually vanish.
Experimental Characterization of a Spin Quantum Heat Engine.
A quantum heat engine based on a spin-1/2 system and nuclear magnetic resonance techniques is experimentally implemented, able to reach an efficiency for work extraction very close to its thermodynamic limit.
Quantum Measurement Cooling.
It is found that the probability that QMC occurs when the measurement basis is chosen randomly can be very large as compared to the probability of extracting energy (heat engine operation), while remaining always smaller than the most useless operation, namely, dumping heat in both baths.
Coherence-enhanced efficiency of feedback-driven quantum engines
A genuine feature of projective quantum measurements is that they inevitably alter the mean energy of the observed system if the measured quantity does not commute with the Hamiltonian. Compared to
The role of quantum measurement in stochastic thermodynamics
This article sets up a new formalism to investigate stochastic thermodynamics in the quantum regime, where stochasticity and irreversibility primarily come from quantum measurement. In the absence of
Quantum thermodynamic cycles and quantum heat engines.
The role of Maxwell's demon is discussed and it is found that there is no violation of the second law, even in the existence of such a demon, when the demon is included correctly as part of the working substance of the heat engine.
Experimental Demonstration of Quantum Effects in the Operation of Microscopic Heat Engines.
Here, an ensemble of nitrogen vacancy centers in diamond is used for implementing two types of quantum heat engines, and the presence of such internal coherence causes different types of Quantum heat engines to become thermodynamically equivalent.
Single-temperature quantum engine without feedback control.
Work, heat, and the efficiency of the engine for the case of a working substance that is governed by the laws of quantum mechanics and that can be adiabatically compressed and expanded are analyzed.
Entropy production and thermodynamic power of the squeezed thermal reservoir.
By introducing a modified quantum Otto cycle, this work fully characterizes operational regimes forbidden in the standard case, such as refrigeration and work extraction at the same time, accompanied by efficiencies equal to unity.
Coherence effects in the performance of the quantum Otto heat engine
The working substance fueling a quantum heat engine may contain coherence in its energy basis, depending on the dynamics of the engine cycle. In some models of quantum Otto heat engines, energy
