We develop a Fermi-liquid based approach to investigate the power output of nano devices in the presence of strong interactions and resonance scattering. The developed scheme is then employed to study the power output of a SU($N$) Kondo impurity at the strong-coupling regime. The interplay between Kondo resonance and the filling-factors in the SU($N$) quantum systems is found to be a key to enhance output power. Such enhancement results an output power corresponding to $50\%$ of the quantum…

Resonator-induced quantum phase transitions in a hybrid Josephson junction
We investigate the Josephson current through a suspended carbon nanotube double quantum dot which, at sufficiently low temperatures, is characterized by the ground state of the electronic subsystem.

Direct Probe of the Seebeck Coefficient in a Kondo-Correlated Single-Quantum-Dot Transistor.
St striking sign changes of the Seebeck coefficient are induced by varying the temperature, depending on the spin configuration in the quantum dot, which demonstrates that the tunneling density of states is generically asymmetric around the Fermi level in the leads, both in the cotunneling and Kondo regimes.

We develop a theoretical framework to study the influences of coupling asymmetry on the thermoelectrics of a strongly coupled SU($N$) Kondo impurity based on a local Fermi liquid theory. Applying

Thermoelectric Characterization of the Kondo Resonance in Nanowire Quantum Dots.
It is experimentally verified that Kondo correlations can induce a polarity change of the thermoelectric current, which can be reversed either by increasing the temperature or by applying a magnetic field.
Thermoelectric Power Factor Limit of a 1D Nanowire.
There is an upper limit to the thermoelectric power factor of nonballistic 1D nanowires, as a consequence of the recently established quantum bound of thermoeLECTric power output, experimentally tested in quasiballistic InAsnanowires.
Two-color Fermi-liquid theory for transport through a multilevel Kondo impurity
We consider a quantum dot with K >= 2 orbital levels occupied by two electrons connected to two electric terminals. The generic model is given by a multilevel Anderson Hamiltonian. The weak-coupling

We investigate thermoelectric transport through a SU(N) quantum impurity in the Kondo regime. The strong coupling fixed point theory is described by the local Fermi-liquid paradigm. Using Keldysh
Controlling charge quantization with quantum fluctuations
It is observed, when approaching the ballistic limit, that charge quantization is destroyed by quantum fluctuations, and scales as the square root of the residual probability for an electron to be reflected across the quantum channel; this scaling also applies beyond the different regimes of connection strength currently accessible to theory.
