In this paper, we apply the generalized master equation to analyze time-dependent transport through a finite quantum wire with an embedded subsystem. The parabolic quantum wire and the leads with several subbands are described by a continuous model. We use an approach originally developed for a tight-binding description selecting the relevant states for transport around the bias-window defined around the values of the chemical potential in the left and right leads in order to capture the…

It is verified that the stationary solution of the SOQREs is able to correctly describe the Kondo effect on a qualitative level, and a comparison with other methods, such as the second-order von Neumann approach and Hubbard-I approximation, is performed.

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.

Time-dependent transport in open systems based on quantum master equations

Electrons in the active region of a nanostructure constitute an open many-body quantum system, interacting with contacts, phonons, and photons. We review the basic premises of the open system theory,
