Control of quantum systems is essential in developing quantum technologies. I will show how application of dynamical control in quantum thermometry can significantly enhance the precision of temperature estimation, even arbitrarily close to absolute zero. I will further talk about application of dynamical control to model diverse quantum thermal machines, and to optimize their performance.
I received my PhD degree from IIT Kanpur in 2012. During my PhD I worked in the group of Prof. Amit Dutta on dynamics of quantum phase transitions. Afterwards I worked briefly as a researcher in CEA Saclay, France, on many body localization transition. Then I joined the groups of Prof. Rosario Fazio in SNS Pisa, italy and Prof. Tommaso Calarco in Ulm University, Ulm, Germany, in a joint collaborative project, to work as a postdoctoral researcher on optimal control of quantum systems. Currently I am working as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Gershon Kurizki in the Weizmann Institute of Science, on quantum control, quantum metrology and quantum thermodynamics.
