First ESiM Workshop: Crossroad of Maxwell Demon

ESiM is organizing the 2-days international workshop «Crossroad of Maxwell Demon» at CEMES in Toulouse (France) on March 1-2, 2023.

The workshop will focus on how the micro-reversibility principle applies to the mechanics of a single molecule and how can be possible ultimately to tackle the Maxwell demon using a well-designed single molecule.

Intramolecular or quantum thermodynamics and single molecule motive power will be discussed, also considering which nano/micro-systems and electronic devices can reach the single object at the nanoscale (atom, molecule…), including cold trap experiments and theory with or without a supporting surface.

Registration is open at

The confirmed invited speakers are:

  • Roberto Robles (Centro de Física de Materiales CFM/MPC (CSIC - UPV/EHU))

ESiM Project Meeting @ Pico Lab, Toulouse

The first ESiM project meeting will take place at the PICO LAB of CEMES-CNRS in Toulouse on February 27th and 28th, 2023.

Principal investigators, postdoc and PhD students working in ESiM will discuss the first results of the project and the preparation of the first ESiM project review.
