We investigate the fluctuations of the time elapsed until the electric charge transferred through a conductor reaches a given threshold value. For this purpose, we measure the distribution of the first-passage times for the net number of electrons transferred between two metallic islands in the Coulomb blockade regime. Our experimental results are in excellent agreement with numerical calculations based on a recent theory describing the exact first-passage-time distributions for any… Expand
Counting quantum jumps: A summary and comparison of fixed-time and fluctuating-time statistics in electron transport.
It is demonstrated that to obtain nonrenewal behavior, and thus to have temporal correlations between successive electron tunneling events, there must be a strong coupling between tunneling electrons and out-of-equilibrium quantized molecular vibrations. Expand
Fluctuating-time and full counting statistics for quantum transport in a system with internal telegraphic noise
Many molecular junctions display stochastic telegraphic switching between two distinct current values, which is therefore an important source of fluctuations in nanoscale quantum transport. WeExpand
First passage time and statistical thermodynamics
The first-passage time is proposed as an independent thermodynamic parameter of the statistical distribution that generalizes the Gibbs distribution. The theory does not include the determination ofExpand
Electronic statistics on demand: Bunching, antibunching, positive, and negative correlations in a molecular spin valve
One of the long-standing goals of quantum transport is to use the noise, rather than the average current, for information processing. However, achieving this requires on-demand control of quantumExpand
Kinetic uncertainty relation on first-passage time for accumulated current.
This Letter derives the KUR on the first passage time for the time-integrated current from the information inequality at stopping times and demonstrates that the activity constraint gives a tighter bound than the thermodynamic uncertainty relation in the regime far from equilibrium. Expand
Extreme-Value Statistics of Stochastic Transport Processes: Applications to Molecular Motors and Sports.
We derive exact expressions for the finite-time statistics of extrema (maximum and minimum) of the spatial displacement and the fluctuating entropy flow of biased random walks. Our approach capturesExpand
Direct detection of molecular intermediates from first-passage times
By combined study of colloidal dynamics in confinement, transport through a biological pore and the folding kinetics of DNA hairpins, it is demonstrated conclusively how a short-time, power-law regime of the first-passage time distribution universally reflects the number of intermediate states associated with each process, irrespective of the lengthscales, timescales or interactions in the system.

Non-equilibrium phase transition in the heterogenous TASEPs with binding and unbinding processes among the adjacent subsystems
Abstract Non-equilibrium phase transition is always one of the most important issue for complexity science, since it can reveal physical mechanisms of abundant physical phenomena. ExploringExpand
First-passage fingerprints of water diffusion near glutamine surfaces.
This work studies the dynamics of water near glutamine surfaces, a system of interest in studies of neurodegenerative diseases, and suggests that the mobility of water varies over a longer length scale than the chemical potential associated with the water-protein interactions. Expand
Time-reversal symmetric Crooks and Gallavotti–Cohen fluctuation relations in driven classical Markovian systems
In this paper, we address an important question of the relationship between fluctuation theorems for the dissipated work $W_{d} = W-\Delta F$ with general finite-time (like Jarzynski equality andExpand


Irreversibility on the Level of Single-Electron Tunneling

We investigate theoretically and experimentally the full counting statistics of bidirectional singleelectron tunneling through a double quantum dot in a GaAs/GaAlAs heterostructure and compare withExpand
Floquet theory of electron waiting times in quantum-coherent conductors.
A Floquet scattering theory of electron waiting time distributions in periodically driven quantum conductors is presented that allows for detailed characterization of the dynamical properties of the quantum-coherent conductor in addition to what can be obtained from the shot noise or the full counting statistics.

Waiting for rare entropic fluctuations
Non-equilibrium fluctuations of various stochastic variables, such as work and entropy production, have been widely discussed recently in the context of large deviations, cumulants and fluctuationExpand

Fundamental Bounds on First Passage Time Fluctuations for Currents.
A conjugate uncertainty relationship for the first passage time to accumulate a fixed net current is derived and previously discovered symmetries and bounds on the large-deviation function for currents are readily transferred to first passage times. Expand
First-passage distributions for the one-dimensional Fokker-Planck equation

Electron counting statistics and coherent states of electric current
A theory of electron counting statistics in quantum transport is presented. It involves an idealized scheme of current measurement using a spin 1/2 coupled to the current so that it precesses at theExpand
Simple bounds on fluctuations and uncertainty relations for first-passage times of counting observables.
This work shows how to obtain the corresponding bounds for first-passage times (times when a certain value of the counting variable is first reached) and their uncertainty relations and explains how dynamical activity controls the bounds on fluctuations of counting observables. Expand
Universal oscillations in counting statistics
It is shown that the oscillations of the cumulants in fact constitute a universal phenomenon, appearing as functions of almost any parameter, including time in the transient regime, and the theory provides a unified interpretation of previous theoretical studies of high-ordercumulants as well as new experimental data.
