Quantum analog of the maximum power transfer theorem


In our recent work in Optics Express, we discover the quantum analog of the well-known classical maximum power transfer theorem, typically used in classical circuit design. By developing a unified framework, from the Lindblad master equation and describing power delivery in dissipative quantum networks, we affirmatively show that the classical theorem is also applicable for a wide range of bosonic quantum systems, e.g. photons, phonons, and magnons.
