Abstract We present results on cavity-photon-assisted electron transport through two lateral quantum dots embedded in a finite quantum wire. The double quantum dot system is weakly connected to two leads and strongly coupled to a single quantized photon cavity mode with initially two linearly polarized photons in the cavity. Including the full electron–photon interaction, the transient current controlled by a plunger-gate in the central system is studied by using quantum master equation…

Thermoelectric Inversion in a Resonant Quantum Dot-Cavity System in the Steady-State Regime
It is observed that the photon replica states contribute to the transport irrespective of the direction of the thermal gradient, and the photon field can change both the magnitude and the sign of the thermoelectric current induced by the temperature gradient in the absence of a voltage bias between the leads.

Manifestation of the Purcell Effect in Current Transport through a Dot–Cavity–QED System
The Purcell effect enhances the current peaks through the cavity by increasing the cavity–reservoir coupling, while they decrease with increasing electron–photon coupling, and the resonant current peaks are also sensitive to the mean number of photons in the reservoir.
