Quantum thermodynamics is a recent field of research, which aims at understanding the thermodynamic properties of quantum systems, and hence the interplay between three fundamental theories of physics: thermodynamics, quantum physics and quantum information. The goal of this project is two-fold: it aims at characterizing quantum coherence and entanglement from a thermodynamical point of view, i.e. the energetic counterpart of these two fundamental quantum mechanical properties, and to investigate the functioning of thermal machines in the quantum regime. Fundamental questions in this area as the role of quantum coherence and entanglement on the efficiency of quantum refrigerators or heaters will be answered. These ideas will be tested by considering experimental setups, which have shown outstanding results in the context of quantum information, superconducting qubits and semiconductor quantum dots. This constitutes a strong advantage to conduct a theoretical work in collaboration with leading experimentalist groups.
