    • A thermodynamic cycle for the solar cell 

      Alicki, Robert; Gelbwaser Klimovsky, David; Jenkins Villalobos, Alejandro (2017-01-06)
      A solar cell is a heat engine, but textbook treatments are not wholly satisfactory from a thermodynamic standpoint, since they present solar cells as directly converting the energy of light into electricity, and the current ...
    • Interaction of a quantum field with a rotating heat bath 

      Alicki, Robert; Jenkins Villalobos, Alejandro (2018-08-01)
      The linear coupling of a rotating heat bath to a quantum field is studied in the framework of the Markovian master equation for the field's non-unitary time evolution. The bath's rotation induces population inversion for ...
