In section 2.1 we introduced a model for a stochastic heat engine operating on the micro scale. Such a heat machine has indeed been experimentally realized by Blickle and Bechinger [23] in 2012. They thereby proved that micromechanical machines that convert thermal to mechanical energy are not merely a theoretical playground, but provide a feasible design for future applications.
