The research in Saar Rahav’s group focuses on the statistical mechanics of small out-of-equilibrium systems. The thermodynamics of systems such as biological motor proteins, artificial molecular machines, and quantum heat engines is explored with the help of simple models. Our research interests also include more fundamental aspects of the dynamics of out-of-equilibrium systems. Examples include fluctuations and rare events, the deep connections between information and thermodynamics, the role of interactions in nanoscale machines, and more.
