Pumping: definitions rectification photovoltaic effect photon-assisted tunneling ratchets Pumping overlaps with:Interested in “small” pumps to witness: quantum interference single-electron charging f I

Adiabatic pump by Thouless If the gap remains open at all times, I = e f (exact integer) Argument is exact for an infinite system DJ Thouless, PRB 27, 6083 (1983)

5
Adiabatic Quantum Pumping a phase-coherent conductor Pump by deforming Change of interference pattern can induce “waves” traveling to infinity

6
Brouwer formula gives I in terms of Brouwer formula: “plug-and-play” Vary shape via X1(t), X2(t),.. Solve for “frozen time” scattering matrix

7
Brouwer formula gives I in terms of Brouwer formula: “plug-and-play”

8
Brouwer formula gives I in terms of Brouwer formula: “plug-and-play” Brouwer formula gives I = Depends on a phase Allows for a geometric interpretation Need 2 parameters! “B”“B”

13
Driving too fast: non-adiabaticity What is the meaning of “adiabatic”? Can develop a series: Q: What is the small parameter? Thouless: staying in the ground state Brouwer: a gapless system! O Entin, A Aharony, Y Levinson PRB 65, (2002)

17
A different starting point Consider states of an isolated, finite device Tunneling to/from leads as a perturbation! Rate equations: concept ΓRΓR ΓLΓL

18
Rate equations: an example For open systems & Thouless pump, see GM Graf, G Ortelli arXiv: ε 0 - i (Γ L +Γ R ) Loading/unloading of a quasi-bound state Rate equation for the occupation probability Interference in an almost closed system just creates the discrete states!

19
Backbone of Single Electron Transistor theory Conditions to work: Tunneling is weak: Γ << Δε or Ec No coherence between multiple tunneling events:Γ << k B T Systematic inclusion of charging effects! Rate equations are useful! DV Averin, KK Likharev “Single Electronics” (1991) CWJ Beenakker PRB 44, 1646 (1991)

V 2 (mV) Fix V 1 and V 2 Apply V ac on top of V 1 Measure the current I(V 2 ) V1V1 V2V2 V1V1 V2V2 Experimental results

24
A simple theory ε0ε0 Given V 1 (t) and V 2, solve the scattering problem Identify the resonance ε 0 (t), Γ L (t) and Γ R (t) Rate equation for the occupation probability P(t)

25
A: Too slow (almost adiabatic) Enough time to equilibrate Charge re-fluxes back to where it came from → I ≈ 0 ω<<Γ

26
B: Balanced for quantization Tunneling is blocked, while the left-right symmetry switches to opposite Loading from the left, unloading to the right → I ≈ e f ω>>Γ

27
C: Too fast Tunneling is too slow to catch up with energy level switching The chrage is “stuck” → I ≈ 0 ω

28
A general outlook I / (ef)
