Title

Developing Thermodynamics and Experiment Models for Quantum Fields

Abstract

The fields of quantum thermodynamics and quantum field theory are crucial for the future development of quantum technology. While thermodynamics has been essential for building devices at human scales, quantum objects require a deeper understanding of thermodynamics. This understanding should include extending thermodynamics to quantum field theory, which is our current most fundamental description of the Universe. However, defining basic concepts of thermodynamics such as work, heat, and entropy for quantum fields is challenging. My research focuses on bringing the concepts of thermodynamics to quantum fields and aims to connect relativistic quantum information theory models to experiments in superconducting devices, investigating unique phenomena of quantum fields like entanglement harvesting.
