In the present work, we explore the properties of electron transport through a quantum interferometer attached symmetrically to two one-dimensional semi-infinite metallic electrodes, namely the source and the drain. The interferometer is made up of two sub-rings where individual sub-rings are penetrated by the Aharonov–Bohm (AB) fluxes 1 and 2, respectively. We adopt a simple tight-binding framework to describe the model, and all the calculations are done based on the single-particle Green's…

We consider the currents flowing in a solid-state interferometer under the effect of both an Aharonov-Bohm phase and a bias potential. Expressions are obtained for these currents, allowing for

Much of the effort in studying mesoscopic systems was directed towards the analysis of thermodynamic or transport properties per se. However, measurements (and, subsequently, the analysis) of such

An analytical approach to the electron transport phenomena in molecular devices is presented. The analyzed devices are composed of various molecular bridges attached to two semi-infinite electrodes.
Feasible Nanometric Magnetoresistance Devices
The electrical conductance through a ring is sensitive to the threading magnetic flux. It contains a component that is periodic with an Aharonov−Bohm (AB) period equal to the quantum flux. In

TLDR
Inelastic effects arising from electron-phonon coupling in molecular Aharonov-Bohm (AB) interferometers are studied using the nonequilibrium Green's function method and the magnetoconductance becomes more sensitive to the threading magnetic flux.
