We study a particle on a ring in presence of a dissipative Caldeira-Leggett environment and derive its response to a dc field. We find, through a 2-loop renormalization group analysis, that a large dissipation parameter η flows to a fixed point η(R)=η(c)=ℏ/2π. We also reexamine the mapping of this problem to that of the Coulomb box and show that the… (More)

The calculation of the conductance of ballistic rings requires a theory that goes well beyond the Kubo-Drude formula. Assuming “mesoscopic” circumstance of very weak environmental relaxation, the conductance is much smaller compared with the naive expectation. Namely, the electro-motiveforce induces an energy absorption with a rate that depends crucially on… (More)
