Dynamics of open fermionic nano-systems -- a fundamental symmetry and its application to electron transport in interacting quantum dots
The study of electronic transport through strongly confined, interacting open quantum systems has regained considerable interest over the past years. One main motivation behind this concerns the
Thermoelectrics of Interacting Nanosystems - Exploiting Superselection Instead of Time-Reversal Symmetry
The findings reveal that next to time-reversal, the duality imposes equally important symmetry restrictions on thermoelectric transport, and is expected to simplify computations and clarify the physical understanding for more complex systems than the simplest relevant interacting nanostructure model studied here.
Enhanced performance of a quantum-dot-based nanomotor due to Coulomb interactions
We study the relation between quantum pumping of charge and the work exchanged with the driving potentials in a strongly interacting ac-driven quantum dot. We work in the large-interaction limit and
Duality for open fermion systems: Energy-dependent weak coupling and quantum master equations
Open fermion systems with energy-independent bilinear coupling to a fermionic environment have been shown to obey a general duality relation [J. Schulenborg, Phys. Rev. B 93, 081411
Thermoelectric properties of a double-dot system in serial configuration within the Coulomb blockade regime.
Under these conditions, characteristics of thermoelectric transport in such systems strongly depend on electron occupation on the dots and on interdot Coulomb interactions, and it is shown that these factors may lead to a heat current rectification.
Extrinsic thermoelectric response of coherent conductors
We investigate the thermoelectric response of a coherent conductor in contact with a scanning probe. Coupling to the probe has the dual effect of allowing for the controlled local injection of heat
Single-electron thermal devices coupled to a mesoscopic gate
We theoretically investigate the propagation of heat currents in a three-terminal quantum dot engine. Electron–electron interactions introduce state-dependent processes which can be resolved by
Thermal rectification and heat amplification in a nonequilibrium V-type three-level system.
The noise-induced interference is found to be able to rectify the heat current, which paves a new way to design quantum thermal rectifier, within the three-reservoir setup.
Thermal transistor and thermometer based on Coulomb-coupled conductors
We study a three-terminal setup consisting of a single-level quantum dot capacitively coupled to a quantum point contact. The point contact connects to a source and drain reservoir while the quantum

This work theoretically analyze rectifying properties of a junction including a couple of quantum dots asymmetrically coupled to the electrodes and shows that the considered double-dot system possesses significant potentialities as a common as well as a heat diod.
