We consider a biased quantum point contact between two Luttinger liquids measuring a quantum-mechanical system (oscillator). There are three main physical results. First, we find that for voltages higher than the oscillator level spacing, the effect of the measurement is equivalent to coupling to a heat bath, with an effective temperature that only depends on the device $I\ensuremath{-}V$ characteristic. Second, we find that this heating changes the $I\ensuremath{-}V$ characteristics on the…

A model of an electrical tunnel junction coupled to a mechanical system (oscillator) is studied to simulate the dephasing effect of measurement on a quantum system and it is found that the oscillator dynamics becomes damped, with the effective temperature determined by the voltage drop across the junction.

Non-equilibrium noise in the transmission current through barriers in 1-D Luttinger liquids and in the tunneling current between edges of fractional quantum Hall liquids is studied and it is shown that contributions from terms of order higher than the dipole-dipole interaction should only affect the strength of the $|\omega|$ singularity.
