Single molecular shuttle-junction: shot noise and decoherence

Journal Article


Download full-text (Open Access)

Abstract


  • Single molecular shuttle-junction is one kind of nanoscale electromechanical tunneling system. In this junction, a molecular island oscillates depending on its charge occupation, and this charge dependent oscillation leads to modulation of electron tunneling through the molecular island. This paper reviews recent development on the study of current, shot noise and decoherence of electrons in the single molecular shuttle-junction. We will give detail discussions on this topic using the typical system model, the theory of fully quantum master equation and the Aharonov-Bohm interferometer.
