Information Engines


Synthetic nanoscale systems can behave as information engines, performing tasks that involve the manipulation of both information and energy. This remarkable fact, highlighted by recent theoretical and experimental breakthroughs, motivates our research. Our goal is to develop a unified framework for understanding, designing, and implementing information-processing engines.
