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.
Thermoelectric cooling properties of a quantum Hall Corbino device
We analyze the thermoelectric cooling properties of a Corbino device in the quantum Hall regime on the basis of experimental data of electrical conductance. We focus on the cooling power and the
Quantum thermoelectric and heat transport in the overscreened Kondo regime: Exact conformal field theory results
We develop a conformal-field theory approach for investigation of the quantum charge-, heat- and thermoelectric- transport through a quantum impurity fine tuned to a non-Fermi liquid regime. The


Theory of nonequilibrium transport in the SU(N) Kondo regime
Using a Fermi-liquid approach, we provide a comprehensive treatment of the current and current noise through a quantum dot whose low-energy behavior corresponds to an $\text{SU}(N)$ Kondo model,
Nonlinear Seebeck effect of SU(N) Kondo impurity
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
Magnetic-field probing of an SU(4) Kondo resonance in a single-atom transistor.
This work claims that the SU(2) symmetric case corresponds to a pure valley Kondo effect of fully polarized electrons and demonstrates experimentally a symmetry crossover from an SU(4) ground state to apure orbital SU( 2) groundState as a function of magnetic field.
Thermoelectric transport through a SU ( N ) Kondo impurity
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
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.
Transport measurement of the orbital Kondo effect with ultracold atoms
The Kondo effect in condensed-matter systems manifests itself most sharply in their transport measurements. Here we propose an analogous transport signature of the orbital Kondo effect realized with
Two-channel Kondo effect and renormalization flow with macroscopic quantum charge states
This work demonstrates the previously elusive ‘charge’ Kondo effect in a hybrid metal–semiconductor implementation of a single-electron transistor, with a quantum pseudospin of 1/2 constituted by two degenerate macroscopic charge states of a metallic island, and demonstrates quantitative agreement with the predictions for the finite-temperature crossover from quantum criticality.
Kondo effect in a single-electron transistor
How localized electrons interact with delocalized electrons is a central question to many problems in sold-state physics. The simplest manifestation of this situation is the Kondo effect, which
Orbital Kondo effect in carbon nanotubes
It is shown that the unique electronic structure of carbon nanotubes enables the observation of a purely orbital Kondo effect, and it is concluded that the orbital quantum number is conserved during tunnelling.
Few-electron quantum dots
We review some electron transport experiments on few-electron, vertical quantum dot devices. The measurement of current versus source–drain voltage and gate voltage is used as a spectroscopic tool to
