Abstract

By employing the full counting statistics formalism, we characterize the first moment of energy that is exchanged during a generally non-Markovian evolution in nondriven continuous-variable systems. In particular, we focus on the evaluation of the energy flowing back from the environment into the open quantum system. We apply these results to the quantum Brownian motion, where these quantities are calculated both analytically, under the weak-coupling assumption, and numerically also in the strong-coupling regime. Finally, we characterize the non-Markovianity of the reduced dynamics through a recently introduced witness based on the so-called Gaussian interferometric power and we discuss its relationship with the energy backflow measure.
