# Voltage probe model of spin decay in a chaotic quantum dot with applications to spin-flip noise and entanglement production

@article{Michaelis2005VoltagePM, title={Voltage probe model of spin decay in a chaotic quantum dot with applications to spin-flip noise and entanglement production}, author={Bj{\"o}rn Michaelis and C. W. J. Beenakker}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2005}, volume={73}, pages={115329} }

The voltage probe model is a model of incoherent scattering in quantum transport. Here we use this model to study the effect of spin-flip scattering on electrical conduction through a quantum dot with chaotic dynamics. The spin decay rate $\ensuremath{\gamma}$ is quantified by the correlation of spin-up and spin-down current fluctuations (spin-flip noise). The resulting decoherence reduces the ability of the quantum dot to produce spin-entangled electron-hole pairs. For $\ensuremath{\gamma…
