We investigate magnetic-field-influenced time-dependent transport of Coulomb interacting electrons through a two-dimensional quantum ring in an electromagnetic cavity under nonequilibrium conditions described by a time-convolutionless non-Markovian master equation formalism. We take into account the full electromagnetic interaction of electrons and cavity photons. A bias voltage is applied to semi-infinite leads along the $x$ axis, which are connected to the quantum ring. The magnetic field is… 

Effects of geometry and linearly polarized cavity photons on charge and spin currents in a quantum ring with spin-orbit interactions

We calculate the persistent charge and spin polarization current inside a finite-width quantum ring of realistic geometry as a function of the strength of the Rashba or Dresselhaus spin-orbit

Electron transport through a quantum dot assisted by cavity photons

We investigate transient transport of electrons through a single quantum dot controlled by a plunger gate. The dot is embedded in a finite wire with length Lx assumed to lie along the x-direction

Photon-induced tunability of the thermospin current in a Rashba ring

The reduced density operator and a general master equation formalism find that both the Rashba interaction and the photon field can significantly modulate the spin polarization and the thermospin polarization current.

Excitation spectra of a quantum ring embedded in a photon cavity

We explore the response of a quantum ring system coupled to a photon cavity with a single mode when excited by a classical dipole field. We find that the energy oscillates between the electronic and

Generalized Master Equation Approach to Time-Dependent Many-Body Transport

It is shown that a generalized master equation written and solved in terms of many-body states provides the suitable formal framework to capture both the effects of the Coulomb interaction and electron–photon coupling due to a surrounding single-mode cavity.

Lamb shift of energy levels in quantum rings

We study the vacuum radiative corrections to energy levels of a confined electron in quantum rings. The calculations are provided for the Lamb shift of energy levels in a low-momentum region of

Regimes of radiative and nonradiative transitions in transport through an electronic system in a photon cavity reaching a steady state

We analyze how a multilevel many‐electron system in a photon cavity approaches the steady state when coupled to external leads. When a plunger gate is used to lower cavity photon dressed one‐ and
