Coulomb blockade of single-electron tunneling, and coherent oscillations in small tunnel junctions
A microscopic approach to the theory of small, current-biased tunnel junctions is developed. This approach yields a natural account of the “secondary” quantization of both the single-electronExpand

Single-electron current sources: towards a refined definition of ampere
Controlling electrons at the level of elementary charge $e$ has been demonstrated experimentally already in the 1980's. Ever since, producing an electrical current $ef$, or its integer multiple, at aExpand

Macroscopic resonant tunneling in the presence of low frequency noise.
We develop a theory of macroscopic resonant tunneling of flux in a double-well potential in the presence of realistic flux noise with a significant low-frequency component. The rate of incoherentExpand

Nonadiabatic charge pumping in a hybrid single-electron transistor.
We study theoretically current quantization in the charge turnstile based on the superconductor-normal-metal single-electron transistor. The quantization accuracy is limited by either AndreevExpand

Bloch oscillations in small Josephson junctions
A quantum-statistics theory is derived for the processes which occur in small Josephson junctions at low temperatures. When the current, the temperature, and the quasiparticle admittance are allExpand

Negative-inductance SQUID as the basic element of reversible Josephson-junction circuits
It has been known for a long time that the thermodynamic limit k/sub B/Tln2 on the energy dissipation per logic operation can be overcome by physically and logically reversible circuits. However,Expand

Experimental realization of a Szilard engine with a single electron
Significance A Maxwell demon makes use of information to convert thermal energy of a reservoir into work. A quantitative example is a thought experiment known as a Szilard engine, which uses one bitExpand

Adiabatic quantum computation with Cooper pairs
We propose a new variant of the controlled-NOT quantum logic gate based on adiabatic level-crossing dynamics of the q-bits. The gate has a natural implementation in terms of the Cooper pair transportExpand
