nano HUB .org Supriyo Datta 1 online simulations and more Network for Computational Nanotechnology CQT Lecture #4 Unified Model for Quantum Transport Far from Equilibrium CQT, Lecture#4: Coulomb blockade and Fock space Objective: To illustrate the limitations of the model described in Lectures 2,3 and introduce a completely different approach based on the concept of Fock space. I believe this will be a key concept in the next stage of development of transport physics. Approach based on (1)Beenakker, Phys.Rev.B44,1646 (1991), (2) Averin & Likharev, J.LowTemp.Phys. 62, 345 (1986) Reference: QTAT, Chapter 3.4. “QTAT” Datta, Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor, Cambridge (2005) U: Self-consistent Field (SCF) H Σ 1 Σ 2 μ 1 2 Σ s
