The shot noise in the electrical current through a ballistic chaotic quantum dot with N-channel point contacts is suppressed for N → ∞, because of the transition from stochastic scattering of quantum wave packets to deterministic dynamics of classical trajectories. The dynamics of the electron spin remains quantum mechanical in this transition, and can affect the electrical current via spin-orbit interaction. We explain how the role of the channel number N in determining the shot noise is taken…

Effect of symmetry class transitions on the shot noise in chaotic quantum dots

Using the random matrix theory (RMT) approach, we calculated the weak localization correction to the shot noise power in a chaotic cavity as a function of magnetic field and spin-orbit coupling. We

We generalize the scattering theory of quantum shot noise to include the full spin-density matrix of electrons injected from a spin-filtering or ferromagnetic electrode into a quantum-coherent

Dynamic spin-flip shot noise of mesoscopic transport through a toroidal carbon nanotube

The shot noise in a toroidal carbon nanotube (TCN) interferometer under the perturbation of a rotating magnetic field (RMF) has been investigated. A general shot noise formula has been derived by

What can we learn about the dynamics of transported spins by measuring shot noise in spin–orbit-coupled nanostructures?

We review recent studies of the shot noise of spin-polarized charge currents and pure spin currents in multiterminal semiconductor nanostructures, while focusing on the effects brought by the



Stochastic path integral formulation of full counting statistics.

A stochastic path integral representation of counting statistics in semiclassical systems is derived and the current cumulants of a chaotic cavity in the hot-electron regime are derived.

Spin-orbit coupling, antilocalization, and parallel magnetic fields in quantum dots.

In situ control of spin-orbit coupling in dots is demonstrated as a gate-controlled crossover from weak localization to antilocalization, consistent with random matrix theory results once orbital coupling of the parallel field is included.
