Cavity quantum electrodynamics advances the coherent control of a single quantum emitter with a quantized radiation field mode, typically piecewise engineered for the highest finesse and confinement in the cavity field. This enables the possibility of strong coupling for chip-scale quantum processing, but till now is limited to few research groups that can(More)
We compare the conductance of an interacting ring with six lattice sites threaded by flux π in a two terminal setup with the conductance of the corresponding Kohn-Sham particles. Based on symmetry considerations we can show that even within (lattice) Density Functional Theory employing the exact Kohn-Sham exchange-correlation functional the conductance of(More)
We employ the density matrix renormalization group to construct the exact time-dependent exchange-correlation potential for an impurity model with an applied transport voltage. Even for short-ranged interaction we find an infinitely long-ranged exchange-correlation potential which is built up instantly after switching on the voltage. Our result demonstrates(More)
We investigate the relationship between persistent currents in multi-channel rings containing an embedded scatterer and the conductance through the same scatterer attached to leads. The case of two uncoupled channels corresponds to a Hubbard chain, for which the one-dimensional embedding method is readily generalized. Various tests are carried out to(More)
We study a method to determine the residual conductance of a correlated system by means of the ground-state properties of a large ring composed of the system itself and a long non-interacting lead. The transmission probability through the interacting region and thus its residual conductance is deduced from the persistent current induced by a flux threading(More)
Fermionic atoms in two different hyperfine states confined in optical lattices show strong commensurability effects due to the interplay between the atomic density wave ordering and the lattice potential. We show that spatially separated regions of commensurable and incommensurable phases can coexist. The commensurability between the harmonic trap and the(More)
PACS. 73.63.-b – Electronic transport in nanoscale materials and structures. Abstract. – In this paper we present a novel approach combining linear response theory (Kubo) for the conductance and the Density Matrix Renormalization Group (DMRG). The system considered is one-dimensional and consists of non-interacting tight binding leads coupled to an(More)
– Using the Quantum Inverse Scattering Method we construct an integrable Heisenberg-XXZ-model, or equivalently a model for spinless fermions with nearest-neighbour interaction, with defects. Each defect involves three sites with a fine tuning between nearest-neighbour and next-nearest-neighbour terms. We investigate the finite size corrections to the ground(More)
