MWSW02 - Theory of wave scattering in complex and random media

The notion of uncertainty relations has been recently extended to Thermodynamics of non equilibrium systems. These relations  unveil useful connections between fluctuations in thermal systems and entropy production. We have applied these ideas to  quantum mesoscopic physics of light where fluctuations are due to coherent mesoscopic effects and entropy production is replaced by a cost function.  We have identified this cost function in terms of the transmission coefficient and its importance will be demonstrated in few exemples including a new type of Casimir forces induced by mesoscopic fluctuations. 

This work has been done together with Ariane Soret and Ohad Shpielberg.
