Title: Onsager Coefficients in Periodically Driven Systems
Authors: PROESMANS, Karel
VAN DEN BROECK, Christian
Issue Date: 2015
Citation: PHYSICAL REVIEW LETTERS, 115 (9)
Abstract: We evaluate the Onsager matrix for a system under time-periodic driving by considering all its Fourier components. By application of the second law, we prove that all the fluxes converge to zero in the limit of zero dissipation. Reversible efficiency can never be reached at finite power. The implication for an Onsager matrix, describing reduced fluxes, is that its determinant has to vanish. In the particular case of only two fluxes, the corresponding Onsager matrix becomes symmetric.
