We experimentally investigate the role of hidden slow degrees of freedom in a system of two magnetically coupled driven colloidal particles. The apparent entropy production based on the observation of just one particle obeys a fluctuation theorem–like symmetry with a slope of 1 in the short time limit. For longer times, we find a constant slope, but different from 1. We present theoretical arguments for a generic linear behavior both for small and large apparent entropy production but not necessarily throughout. By fine-tuning experimental parameters, such an intermediate nonlinear behavior can indeed be recovered in our system as well.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2012-06-01</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Seifert, Udo</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Mehl, Jakob</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Lander, Boris</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Bechinger, Clemens</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Bechinger, Clemens</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:title>Role of Hidden Slow Degrees of Freedom in the Fluctuation Theorem</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Blickle, Valentin</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-06-19T08:13:58Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Lander, Boris</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Seifert, Udo</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Mehl, Jakob</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Blickle, Valentin</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-06-19T08:13:58Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
