Controlling Heat and Particle Currents in Nanodevices by Quantum Observation

OK, I admit that the Escher-like waterfall drawing caused me to post this. "Researchers from the Theory Department of the MPSD have realized the control of thermal and electrical currents in nanoscale devices by means of quantum local observations. Measurement plays a fundamental role in quantum mechanics. The best-known illustration of the principles of superposition and entanglement is Schrödinger's cat. Invisible from the outside, the cat resides in a coherent superposition of two states, alive and dead at the same time. By means of a measurement ..." https://phys.org/news/2017-07-particle-currents-nanodevices-quantum.html
