Tunneling Current in a Single Level System

  • Jonas Fransson
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 809)

Abstract

We study the local properties and the tunneling current in a single level quantum dot system employing the different approximation schemes developed in the previous chapters. The impact of the one-loop approximation cause variations in the broadening of the local level and an additional explicit contribution to the current. We proceed by discussing the behavior under spin-dependent conditions.
