Terahertz technology has recently emerged as a highly sought-after and versatile scientific tool in many fields, including medical imaging, security screening, and wireless communication. However, scientific progress has been hindered by the lack of sources and detectors in this frequency range, thereby known as the terahertz gap. Here, we show that carbon(More)
The switching dynamics of a double-barrier Josephson junction is analyzed as a function of the microscopic properties of its electrodes. In particular, it is found that the nonstationary behavior of the Josephson phase difference is very sensitive to dissipation mechanisms acting inside the intrinsic shunt. The leading factor that determines the dissipation(More)
Van Hove singularities (VHSs) are a hallmark of reduced dimensionality, leading to a divergent density of states in one and two dimensions and predictions of new electronic properties when the Fermi energy is close to these divergences. In carbon nanotubes, VHSs mark the onset of new subbands. They are elusive in standard electronic transport(More)
A large, reentrant, Josephson current is observed in SINIS (Nb/Al/AlOx/Al/AlOx/Al/Nb) junctions at a finite voltage close to Delta/e (where Delta is the superconducting energy gap in S) and a bias current exceeding the zero-voltage Josephson current. The effect is studied using a multiterminal device configuration. A theoretical interpretation in terms of(More)
A directional photon-assisted resonant chiral tunneling through a bilayer graphene barrier is considered. An external electromagnetic field applied to the barrier switches the transparency T in the longitudinal direction from its steady state value T = 0 to the ideal T = 1 at no energy costs. The switch happens because the ac field affects the phase(More)
We analyze the performance of a particle detector based on a double-barrier Nb/Al/AlOx/Al/AlOx/Al/Nb junction where the Al trapping layer is embedded between two insulating AlO/sub x/ barriers. Within this layer, a very sharp Andreev bound state (ABS) level E/sub 0/ is formed. Because of a very long recombination time, the charge amplification factor is(More)
The electron transport through a carbon nanotube (CNT) double barrier junction exposed to an external electromagnetic field is studied. The electron spectrum in the quantum well (QW) formed by the junction bears relativistic features. We examine how the ac field affects the level quantization versus the ac field parameters and chirality. We find that the(More)
Insufficient flexibility of existing approaches to controlling the thermal transport in atomic monolayers limits their capability for use in many applications. Here, we examine the means of electrode doping to control the thermal flux Q due to phonons propagating along the atomic monolayer. We found that the frequency of the electron-restricted phonon(More)
