Özet

The four-level entangled quantum heat engine (QHE) is analyzed in the various Heisenberg models for a two-qubit. The QHE is examined for the XX, XXX and XXZ Heisenberg models by introducing a parameter x which controls the strength of the exchange parameter J(z) = xJ along the z-axis with respect to the ones along the x -and y-axes, i.e. J(x) = J(y) = J, respectively. It is assumed that the two-qubit is entangled and in contact with two heat reservoirs at different temperatures and under the effect of a constant magnetic field. The concurrences (C) are used as a measure of entanglement and then the expressions for the amount of heat transferred, the work performed and the efficiency of the QHE are derived. The contour, i.e. the isoline maps, and some two-dimensional plots of the above mentioned thermodynamic quantities are calculated and some interesting features are found.
