    We study the energy transfer rate for electrons in two parallel quantum wires due to interwire Coulomb interactions. The energy transfer rate between the wires (similar to the Coulomb drag effect in which momentum transfer rate is measured) is calculated as a function of temperature for several...

    Single-electron transistors have been fabricated with individual n-type monocrystalline germanium nanowires to realize an electron single-spin in a quantum dot. At low temperatures, well-pronounced Coulomb oscillations, with almost equidistant peak spacings and strongly varied peak amplitudes,...

    We study anomalies in the Coulomb blockade spectrum of a quantum dot formed in a silicon nanowire. These anomalies are attributed to electrostatic interaction with charge traps in the device. A simple model reproduces these anomalies accurately and we show how the capacitance matrices of the...

    In the present work we obtain the wave function and the corresponding energy of exciton confined within a quantum wire. What we do is to obtain the approximate analytical solution of the corresponding Schrödinger equation for the quantum wire in the presence of Coulomb and confining terms. We...

    Mesoscopic charge pumping, a transport mechanism that relies on the explicit time-dependence of some properties of a nanoscale conductor, was envisaged theoretically a few decades ago. So far, nanoscale pumps have been realized only in systems exhibiting strong Coulombic effects, whereas...

    Low-frequency noise has been studied in compressively strained Si0.8Ge0.2 core-shell nanowire (NW) p-channel transistors compared with unstrained NWs. The noise has been well interpreted using the carrier number with correlated mobility fluctuation model. The volume trap density, Nt, lies in the...
