# Thermodynamic fingerprints of non-Markovianity in a system of coupled superconducting qubits

@article{Raja2018ThermodynamicFO, title={Thermodynamic fingerprints of non-Markovianity in a system of coupled superconducting qubits}, author={Sina Hamedani Raja and Massimo Borrelli and Rebecca Schmidt and Jukka P. Pekola and Sabrina Maniscalco}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={2018}, volume={97}, pages={1-8} }

The exploitation and characterization of memory effects arising from the interaction between system and environment is a key prerequisite for quantum reservoir engineering beyond the standard Markovian limit. In this paper we investigate a prototype of non-Markovian dynamics experimentally implementable with superconducting qubits. We rigorously quantify non-Markovianity highlighting the effects of the environmental temperature on the Markovian to non-Markovian crossover. We investigate how… Expand
