Reversing the Sign of Current-Current Correlations

Abstract

Dynamic fluctuation properties of mesoscopic electrical conductors provide additional information not obtainable through conductance measurement. Indeed, over the last decade, experimental and theoretical investigations of current fluctuations have successfully developed into an important subfield of mesoscopic physics. A detailed report of this development is presented in the review by Blanter and Büttiker [1].

    Since we are interested in the charge density within a specific region the derivative should be taken with respect to the local (electrostatic) potential, (see Eq. (38)) and not energy. The difference is important in situations where a WKB-approximation does not apply. See also M. Büttiker, Phys. Rev. B27, 6178 (1983).Google Scholar
