Electron Waiting Times of a Cooper Pair Splitter.

The statistics of electron waiting times can be used to characterize Cooper pair splitters that create spatially separated spin-entangled electrons and the predictions may be verified using current technology.

Electron Waiting Times in a Strongly Interacting Quantum Dot: Interaction Effects and Higher-Order Tunneling Processes.

This work considers an interacting quantum dot and develops a real-time diagrammatic theory of waiting time distributions that captures higher-order tunneling processes at low temperatures, which are not included in a classical description, and which dramatically affect the waiting times by allowing fast Tunneling processes inside the Coulomb blockade region.

Electron waiting times in hybrid junctions with topological superconductors

We investigate the waiting time distributions (WTDs) of superconducting hybrid junctions, considering both conventional and topologically nontrivial superconductors hosting Majorana bound states at

Waiting time distributions in a two-level fluctuator coupled to a superconducting charge detector

We analyze charge fluctuations in a parasitic state strongly coupled to a superconducting Josephson-junction-based charge detector. The charge dynamics of the state resembles that of electron

Quantum theory of an electron waiting time clock

The electron waiting time is the time that passes between two subsequent charge transfers in an electronic conductor. Recently, theories of electron waiting times have been devised for quantum

Real-Time Diagrammatic Theory of Electron Waiting Time Distributions: Interaction Effects and Higher-Order Tunneling Processes

We develop a real-time diagrammatic theory of electron waiting time distributions for quantum transport in strongly interacting nanostructures. While existing methods address either weakly coupled

Numerically exact full counting statistics of the nonequilibrium Anderson impurity model

The time dependent full counting statistics of charge transport through an interacting quantum junction is evaluated from its generating function, controllably computed with the inchworm Monte Carlo

Electron waiting times of a periodically driven single-electron turnstile

We investigate the distribution of waiting times between electrons emitted from a periodically driven single-electron turnstile. To this end, we develop a scheme for analytic calculations of the

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.

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 quantum



Electronic entanglement in the vicinity of a superconductor

Abstract:A weakly biased normal-metal-superconductor junction is considered as a potential device injecting entangled pairs of quasi-particles into a normal-metal lead. The two-particle states arise

Distributions of electron waiting times in quantum-coherent conductors

The distribution of electron waiting times is useful to characterize quantum transport in mesoscopic structures. Here we consider a generic quantum-coherent conductor consisting of a mesoscopic

Waiting time distributions for the transport through a quantum-dot tunnel coupled to one normal and one superconducting lead.

The waiting time distributions for subgap transport through a single-level quantum-dot tunnel coupled to one normal and one superconducting lead reveal the internal dynamics of the system, in particular, the coherent transfer of Cooper pairs between the dot and the superconductor.

Electron waiting times in coherent conductors are correlated

We evaluate the joint distributions of electron waiting times in coherent conductors described by scattering theory. Successive electron waiting times in a single-channel conductor are found to be

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.

Entangled electron current through finite size normal-superconductor tunneling structures

Abstract.We investigate theoretically the simultaneous tunneling of two electrons from a superconductor into a normal metal at low temperatures and voltages. Such an emission process is shown to be

Superconductor coupled to two Luttinger liquids as an entangler for electron spins

We consider an s-wave superconductor (SC) which is tunnel coupled to two spatially separated Luttinger-liquid (LL) leads. We demonstrate that such a setup acts as an entangler, i.e., it creates spin

Orbital entanglement and violation of Bell inequalities in mesoscopic conductors.

It is shown that the Bell inequality can be violated for arbitrary strong dephasing in the normal conductor.

Non-Markovian effects in the quantum noise of interacting nanostructures

We present a theory of finite-frequency noise in non-equilibrium conductors. It is shown that Non-Markovian correlations are essential to describe the physics of quantum noise. In particular, we show
