Abstract

We explore theoretically how the correlation effects involving spins can appear in transport properties when we put zero dimensional (0D: quantum dots), ID (quantum wires) or in 2D correlated systems in magnetic fields. We show that the correlation induces a spin blockade through ‘electron molecules’ in quantum dots, a spin polarised current in a Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid and a negative magnetoresistance in partly flat bands.

    To be precise, calculations with a 1/r interaction require a larger confinement energy to reproduce experimental results, which is considered to be a consequence of the modification of the interaction potential in real dots (P. A. Maksym and N. A. Bruce, Physica E 1, 211 (1997)).Google Scholar

    For B = 0 we can make the electron correlation strong if we make the system dilute enough. R. Egger, W. Hausler, C. H. Mak and H. Grabert, Phys. Rev. Lett. 82, 3320 (1999), have indeed shown recently that a spin blockade can occur even at B-0 in a dot with dilue electrons.CrossRefGoogle Scholar
