MY RESEARCH IN QUANTUM MECHANICS

I am a theoretical physicist studying quantum mechanics, which is the theory of wave-particle duality. I apply this theory to the motion of electrons in nanometre-sized circuits.

KEYWORDS :
  • quantum thermodynamics
  • thermoelectricity in nanostructures
  • irreversibility in open quantum systems
  • quantum chaos

These fields of research occupy scientists around the world, many of whom I work with. Our objective is to understand the laws of nature at the nanometre-scale. The answers to these questions may be useful for the development of new thermoelectric devices (refrigerators, power supplies, etc) or perhaps one-day for quantum computers.
