    Modern models on thermal noise are derived based on the quantum-theoretical fluctuation-dissipation theorem (F-D Theorem). Although 1/f-noise is apparently a fluctuation phenomenon, it is not (yet?) covered by the F-D theorem. The reason for that could be that the F-D theorem is subject to...

    In a ‘controlled dephasing’ experiment, an interferometer loses its coherence owing to entanglement of the interfering electron with a controlled quantum system, which effectively is equivalent to path detection. In previous experiments, only partial dephasing was achieved owing to...

    The frequency-dependent transmission coefficient of a particle tunneling through a time-dependent barrier is calculated taking into account the quantum interference effect. We consider a rectangular barrier of height V0 with a time-dependent modulation of single frequency ω. For small...

    A self-consistent quantum mechanical simulation is used to study the effect of spacer layer thickness on such resonant tunneling diode properties as the peak current and peak-to-valley current ratio. It is found that with a low cathode doping the peak current is insensitive to the commonly used...

    Non-Fermi-liquid tunneling mechanisms in a quantum structure with its own two-dimensional continuum doped with transition metal impurities are considered. New physical realizations of the two-channel Kondo orbital model with mechanisms different from those previously described in literature...

    We derive an optimized random phase approximation from an expansion of the free energy in terms of the generating functional. We apply the theory to a quantum mechanical tunneling system coupled to a Gaussian bath. The theory reproduces both short-time behavior and long-time averages of (real...

    We report the first observations of resonant tunneling in the AlSb/InAs material system, with a maximum peak-to-valley current ratio of 1.8:1 at room temperature and 9:1 at 77 K. The large AlSb/InAs barrier height of 1.8 eV for electrons and high-mobility InAs will be advantageous in device...
