Statistics of energy dissipation of a driven two-level system

Wollfarth, Philip

Abstract (englisch):
In this thesis the statistics of energy dissipated by a periodically driven two-level system is studied. A measurement scheme is proposed, where the energy exchange between the system and the bath is monitored. In addition, the system undergoes two strong measurements before and after the driving is applied. Consequently, the statistics of the dissipated energy is strongly affected by the external manipulations. In the context of the well-known fluctuation relations, the proposed measurement scheme allows for a feasible detection of quantum signatures.
