Quantum-dot Carnot engine at maximum power

Academic Article


  • We evaluate the efficiency at maximum power of a quantum-dot Carnot heat engine. The universal values of the coefficients at the linear and quadratic order in the temperature gradient are reproduced. Curzon-Ahlborn efficiency is recovered in the limit of weak dissipation. © 2010 The American Physical Society.
