@inproceedings{Soori2022TransmissionAN, title={Transmission across non-Hermitian \$\mathcal\{P\}\mathcal\{T\}\$-symmetric quantum dots and ladders}, author={Abhiram Soori and M. Sivakumar and V. Subrahmanyam}, year={2022} }

We propose a model and study the scattering across a non-Hermitian PT -symmetric two-level quantum dot (QD) connected to two semi-inﬁnite one-dimensional lattices. Aharonov-Bohm type phases are included in the model, which arise from magnetic ﬂuxes ( (cid:126) φ L /e, (cid:126) φ R /e ) through two loops in the system. We focus on the case φ L = φ R , for which the probability current is conserved. We ﬁnd that the transmission across the QD can be perfect in the PT -unbroken phase…

In non-Hermitian scattering problems the behavior of the transmission probability is very different from its Hermitian counterpart; it can exceed unity or even be divergent, since the non-Hermiticity…

We study the effect of PT-symmetric complex potentials on the transport properties of non-Hermitian systems, which consist of an infinite linear chain and two side-coupled defect points with…

A non-Hermitian Hamilton operator and the physics of open quantum systems

The Hamiltonian Heff of an open quantum system consists formally of a first-order interaction term describing the closed (isolated) system with discrete states and a second-order term caused by the…

Scattering properties of a parity-time-antisymmetric non-Hermitian system

We investigate the scattering properties of an anti-parity-symmetric non-Hermitian system. The anti-parity-symmetric scattering center possesses imaginary nearest-neighbor hoppings and real onsite…

Observation of non-Hermitian degeneracies in a chaotic exciton-polariton billiard

It is demonstrated that non-Hermiticity dramatically modifies the structure of modes and spectral degeneracies in exciton-polariton systems, and, therefore, will affect their quantum transport, localization and dynamical properties.

We analyze the optical properties of one-dimensional PT-symmetric structures of arbitrary complexity. These structures violate normal unitarity (photon flux conservation) but are shown to satisfy…
