Low-temperature transport through a quantum dot: The Anderson model out of equilibrium Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract : The infinite-U Anderson model is applied to non-equilibrium transport through a quantum dot containing two spin levels weakly coupled to two leads. At low temperatures, the Kondo peak in the equilibrium density of states is split upon the application of a voltage bias. The split peaks, one at the chemical potential of each lead, are suppressed by non-equilibrium dissipation. In a magnetic field, the Kondo peaks shift away from the chemical potentials by the Zeeman energy, leading to an observable peak in the differential conductance when the non-equilibrium bias equals the Zeeman energy.
