Quantum interference in Aharonov–Bohm (AB) ring structure provides additional control of spin at mesoscopic scale. We propose a scheme for spin filter by studying the coherent transport through the AB structure with lateral magnetic modulation on both arms of ring structure. Large spin polarized current can be obtained with many energy channels.

    The transport properties of a system of two interacting dots, one of them directly connected to the leads constituting a side-coupled configuration (SCD), are studied in the weak and strong tunnel-coupling limits. The conductance behavior of the SCD structure has new and richer physics than the...

An adequate description of mesoscopic superconductivity is obtained by introducing a nonrelativistic version of Grassmann...
