Three-terminal quantum-dot refrigerators.

Based on two capacitively coupled quantum dots in the Coulomb-blockade regime, a model of three-terminal quantum-dot refrigerators is proposed and the transport properties of steady-state charge current and energy flow between two quantum dots and thermal reservoirs are revealed.

Autonomous quantum refrigerator in a circuit QED architecture based on a Josephson junction

An implementation of a small quantum absorption refrigerator in a circuit QED architecture is proposed. The setup consists of three harmonic oscillators coupled to a Josephson junction. The

Staircase Quantum Dots Configuration in Nanowires for Optimized Thermoelectric Power

This work shows in this work how output power of the device can be optimized via tuning the number and energy configuration of the quantum-dots embedded in parallel nanowires and finds that the staircase energy configuration with constant energy-step can improve the power factor over a serial connection of a single pair of quantum-Dots.

Quantum heat engines based on electronic Mach-Zehnder interferometers

We theoretically investigate the thermoelectric properties of heat engines based on Mach-Zehnder interferometers. The energy dependence of the transmission amplitudes in such setups arises from a

A quantum‐dot refrigerator

A cryogenic refrigeration scheme is presented which utilizes the discrete energy levels of quantum dots to customize the electronic Fermi–Dirac distribution, cooling a small but macroscopic reservoir

Coulomb-Blockade Oscillations in the Thermopower of a Quantum Dot.

The thermopower of a quantum dot, defined in the two-dimensional electron gas in a GaAs-AlxGa1-xAs heterostructure, is investigated using a current heating technique. At lattice temperatures kBT much

Single-electron thermal devices coupled to a mesoscopic gate

We theoretically investigate the propagation of heat currents in a three-terminal quantum dot engine. Electron–electron interactions introduce state-dependent processes which can be resolved by

Chiral thermoelectrics with quantum Hall edge states.

A contribution to the thermoelectric response that relies on the chirality of the carrier motion rather than on spatial asymmetries is identified, and the possibility to generate spin-polarized currents in quantum spin Hall samples is discussed.
