The Fano effect, which arises from an interference between a localized state and the continuum, reveals a fundamental aspect of quantum mechanics. We have realized a tunable Fano system in a quantum dot (QD) in an Aharonov-Bohm interferometer, which is the first convincing demonstration of this effect in mesoscopic systems. With the aid of the continuum, the localized state inside the QD acquires itinerancy over the system even in the Coulomb blockade. Through tuning of the parameters, which is…

Mesoscopic Fano effect in a quantum dot embedded in an Aharonov-Bohm ring
The Fano effect, which occurs through the quantum-mechanical cooperation between resonance and interference, can be observed in electron transport through a hybrid system of a quantum dot and an
The phase of Fano resonance in Aharonov–Bohm interferometer with a quantum dot embedded
Abstract We study the Fano effect of a closed Aharonov–Bohm mesoscopic interferometer, with a quantum dot embedded in one of the paths, in the presence of dephasing which is introduced by the
Mesoscopic Fano effect through a quantum dot in an Aharonov–Bohm ring
Abstract The Fano effect illustrates how the interference and resonance cooperatively occur between a discrete state and a continuum energy state. We have realized a tunable Fano system by
Transport Properties of an Aharonov-Bohm Interferometer with an In-line Quantum Dot
We investigate the transport properties of a single quantum dot Aharonov-Bohm (AB) interferometer by analyzing the total current of the system in and out of the Kondo regime. We then interpolate the
Fano resonance in a quantum wire with a side-coupled quantum dot
We report a transport experiment on the Fano effect in a quantum connecting wire (QW) with a side-coupled quantum dot (QD). The Fano resonance occurs between the QD and the "T-shaped" junction in the
Buildup of Fano resonances in the time domain in a double quantum dot Aharonov-Bohm interferometer
In this paper, we investigate transient quantum transport in a nanoscale Aharonov-Bohm (AB) interferometer consisting of a laterally coupled double quantum dot (DQD) coupled to the source and drain
Interferometry through a Quantum Dot Coupled to Majorana Fermions
Abstract We investigate transport properties of an Aharonov-Bohm interferometer with an embedded quantum dot with Majorana bound states at the end of the topological superconductor. The differential
Tunable spin manipulation in a quantum dot embedded in an Aharonov-Bohm interferometer
In this paper, we study the electron properties of an Aharonov-Bohm interferometer with an embedded quantum dot (QD) by considering the leads of spin bias. As a result, it is found that a local
Flux-dependent Kondo temperature in an Aharonov-Bohm interferometer with an in-line quantum dot
An Aharonov-Bohm interferometer (ABI) carrying a quantum dot on one of its arms is analyzed. It is found that the Kondo temperature of the device may depend strongly on the magnetic flux penetrating
PERSISTENCE OF FANO AND AHARONOV-BOHM PHASES IN AN INTERFEROMETER WITH A QUANTUM DOT
Using a realistic model of an Aharonov-Bohm ring with a quantum dot in one arm and a control gate in the other, we demonstrate phase persistence in the Fano and Aharonov-Bohm effects as has been
