The Demon That Betters the World
Researchers at an Aalto University laboratory, in collaboration with Stony Brook University and Tokyo University, have been successful with a famous thought experiment that has haunted the scientific world for more than 150 years: the Maxwell’s demon. Experiments show how an electronic Maxwell’s demon converts information to energy with the help of nano technology. This achievement could lead towards a more energy-efficient future.
