We analyze the effects of intersite energy correlations on the linear optical properties of one-dimensional disordered Frenkel exciton systems. The absorption line width and the factor of radiative rate enhancement are studied as a function of the correlation length of the disorder. The absorption line width monotonously approaches the seeding degree of(More)
We investigate Bloch oscillations of interacting cold atoms in a mean-field framework. In general, atom-atom interaction causes dephasing and destroys Bloch oscillations. Here we show that Bloch oscillations are persistent if the interaction is modulated harmonically with suitable frequency and phase. For other modulations, Bloch oscillations are rapidly(More)
Polaron effects for charge migration in DNA molecules have been previously considered within the Peyrard-Bishop-Holstein model. When a uniform electric field is applied, the polaron moves asymptotically at a constant velocity, provided dissipative effects are taken into account, and then current flows through DNA. Disorder originating from interactions with(More)
We consider the electronic transport through a Rashba quantum dot coupled to ferromagnetic leads. We show that the interference of localized electron states with resonant electron states leads to the appearance of the Fano-Rashba effect. This effect occurs due to the interference of bound levels of spin-polarized electrons with the continuum of electronic(More)
We characterized the electronic properties of ordered and intentionally disordered GaAs – Al x Ga 12x As superlattices, with and without dimer-type correlations in the disorder, by means of spectroscopic ellipsometry in the near band-edge region. The spectra have been compared to the calculate electronic structure. The optical transitions in the various(More)
We study the dynamics of an electron subjected to a uniform electric field within a tight-binding model with long-range-correlated diagonal disorder. The random distribution of site energies is assumed to have a power spectrum S(k) approximately 1/k(alpha) with alpha>0. de Moura and Lyra [Phys. Rev. Lett. 81, 3735 (1998)]] predicted that this model supports(More)
We present a theoretical analysis of the effects of the environment on charge transport in double-stranded synthetic poly(G)-poly(C) DNA molecules attached to two ideal leads. Coupling of the DNA to the environment results in two effects: (i) localization of carrier functions due to static disorder and (ii) phonon-induced scattering of the carriers between(More)
A new type of quantum interference device based on a graphene nanoring in which all edges are of the same type is studied theoretically. The superposition of the electron wavefunction propagating from the source to the drain along the two arms of the nanoring gives rise to interesting interference effects. We show that a side-gate voltage applied across the(More)
We calculate the binding energy of on- and off-center hydrogenic impurities in a parabolic quantum dot subjected to an intense high-frequency laser field. An exactly solvable model that replaces the actual Coulomb interaction with the donor by a non-local separable potential is introduced for calculating the binding energy. The separable potential allows us(More)
We propose a novel spin filter based on a graphene nanoring fabricated above a ferromagnetic strip. The exchange interaction between the magnetic moments of the ions in the ferromagnet and the electron spin splits the electronic states, and gives rise to spin polarization of the conductance and the total electric current. We demonstrate that both the(More)
