Experiments on the direction-resolved full-counting statistics of single-electron tunneling allow testing the fundamentally important Fluctuation Theorem (FT). At the same time, the FT provides a frame for analyzing such data. Here we consider tunneling through a double quantum dot system which is coupled capacitively to a quantum point contact (QPC) detector. Fluctuations of the environment, including the shot noise of the QPC, lead to an enhancement of the effective temperature in the FT. We… CONTINUE READING
