# Charge Fractionalization in nonchiral Luttinger systems

@inproceedings{Hur2008ChargeFI, title={Charge Fractionalization in nonchiral Luttinger systems}, author={Karyn Le Hur and Bertrand I. Halperin and Amir Yacoby}, year={2008} }

One-dimensional metals, such as quantum wires or carbon nanotubes, can carry charge in arbitrary units, smaller or larger than a single electron charge. However, according to Luttinger theory, which describes the low-energy excitations of such systems, when a single electron is injected by tunneling into the middle of such a wire, it will tend to break up into separate charge pulses, moving in opposite directions, which carry definite fractions f and (1−f) of the electron charge, determined by… Expand
