[en] Small systems are often subjected to strong fluctuations and can easily be driven far from equilibrium. My aim is to show that stochastic thermodynamics is a powerful theory that can help us better understand how to manipulate and control small systems in an efficient way. I will discuss in particular how a stochastic driving or a feedback control can be used to make small systems, such as single level quantum dots, operate as efficient thermodynamic machines.
