Abstract

Photon-assisted tunneling (PAT), long restricted to transport in superconducting junctions1, has recently emerged in transport in semiconductor superlattices and nanostructures in the presence of high frequency fields2,3,4,5,6,7,8 The full character of PAT, however, has not been experimentally established.
