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 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 have theoretically investigated two-band models of graded-gap super-lattices within the envelope-function approximation. Assuming that the gap varies linearly with spatial coordinate, we are able to find exact solutions of the corresponding Dirac-like equation describing the conduction-and valence-band envelope-functions. The dispersion relation inside(More)
We study the electronic structure of a new type of Fibonacci superlattice based on Si δ-doped GaAs. Assuming that δ-doped layers are equally spaced, quasiperiodicity is introduced by selecting two different donor concentrations and arranging them according to the Fibonacci series along the growth direction. The one-electron potential due to δ-doping is(More)
We study numerically the dynamics of a one-electron wave packet in a two-dimensional random lattice with long-range correlated diagonal disorder in the presence of a uniform electric field. The time-dependent Schrödinger equation is used for this purpose. We find that the wave packet displays Bloch-like oscillations associated with the appearance of a phase(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 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)
