# Thermodynamics of decoherence

@inproceedings{Popovic2021ThermodynamicsOD, title={Thermodynamics of decoherence}, author={Maria Popovic and Mark T. Mitchison and John Goold}, year={2021} }

We investigate the nonequilibrium thermodynamics of pure decoherence. In a pure decoherence process, the system Hamiltonian is a constant of motion and there is no direct energy exchange between the system and its surroundings. Nevertheless, the environment’s energy is not generally conserved and in this work we show that this leads to nontrivial heat dissipation as a result of decoherence alone. This heat has some very distinctive properties: it obeys an integral fluctuation relation and can…

A simple strategy for enhancing quantum sensing protocols based on the fact that they often give rise to an inadvertent quench of the probed system, which enables methods for direct measurement of bath temperature, and for detecting non-thermal equilibrium states.
