Our papers are the official record of our discoveries. They allow others to build on and apply our work. Each paper is the result of many months of research, so we make a special effort to make them clear, beautiful and inspirational, and publish them in leading journals.

  • On defining the Hamiltonian beyond quantum theory

    DBODO. DahlstenAG Foundations of Physics

    A Hamiltonian recipe

    An explicit recipe for defining the Hamiltonian in general probabilistic theories, which have the potential to generalise quantum theory.

  • Organic molecule fluorescence as an experimental test-bed for quantum jumps in thermodynamics

    CBTFODO. DahlstenVV Proceedings of the Royal Society A

    Quantum thermodynamics

    Spectroscopy experiments show that energy shifts due to photon emission from individual molecules satisfy a fundamental quantum relation.

  • Entropic equality for worst-case work at any protocol speed

    ODO. DahlstenMCDBAGNHVV New Journal of Physics

    Worst-case work entropic equality

    A new equality which depends on the maximum entropy describes the worst-case amount of work done by finite-dimensional quantum systems.

  • Optimal counter-current exchange networks

    RFR. FarrYM Physical Review E

    Optimal heat exchange networks

    Compact heat exchangers can be designed to run at low power if the exchange is concentrated in a crumpled surface fed by a fractal network.

  • Physical Review Letters

    Photonic Maxwell's demon

    With inspiration from Maxwell’s classic thought experiment, it is possible to extract macroscopic work from microscopic measurements of photons.

  • New Journal of Physics

    A measure of majorization

    Single-shot information theory inspires a new formulation of statistical mechanics which measures the optimal guaranteed work of a system.

  • Journal of Physics A

    Spin systems on Bethe lattices

    Exact equations for the thermodynamic quantities of lattices made of d-dimensional hypercubes are obtainable with the Bethe-Peierls approach.

  • Journal of Physics A

    Entanglement typicality

    A review of the achievements concerning typical bipartite entanglement for random quantum states involving a large number of particles.

  • Entropy

    The temperature of networks

    A new concept, graph temperature, enables the prediction of distinct topological properties of real-world networks simultaneously.
