Special Issue "Thermodynamics in Quantum and Mesoscopic Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2023 | Viewed by 8782
Interests: quantum estimation; quantum noise; quantum dynamical control; quantum sensing
Historically, thermodynamics was developed to study complex, macroscopic systems, where the standard “thermodynamic limit” applies. Nevertheless, recent experimental and theoretical progress offers glimpses into unconventional thermodynamic behavior in mesoscopic and quantum systems due to size-dependent fluctuations and quantum effects. This focus issue provides a venue for experimental and theoretical studies of thermodynamics on any topic related to mesoscopic and quantum systems. The aim is to advance our understanding of the principles underlying their thermalization and the exchange of heat, work, and information, as well as their foreseeable applications.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
