Electronic Transport Through A Nuclear-Spin-Polarization-Induced Quantum Wire, Yuriy V. Pershin Dr, S. N. Shevchenko, I. D. Vagner, P. Wyder

Faculty Publications

Electron transport in a low-dimensional structure—the nuclear-spin-polarization-induced quantum wire is theoretically studied. In the proposed system the local nuclear-spin polarization creates the effective hyperfine field that confines the electrons with the spins opposite to the hyperfine field to the regions of maximal nuclear-spin polarization. The influence of the nuclear-spin relaxation and diffusion on the electron energy spectrum and on the conductance of the quantum wire is calculated and the experimental feasibility is discussed.


De Haas-Van Alphen Oscillations In The Quasi-Two-Dimensional Organic Conductor Κ-(Et)2cu(Ncs)2: The Magnetic Breakdown Approach, V. M. Gvozdikov, Yuriy V. Pershin Dr, E. Steep, A. G. M. Jansen, P. Wyder Apr 2002

Faculty Publications

We present both experimental data and an analytic theory for the de Haas–van Alphen ~dHvA! effect in the two-dimensional organic single-crystal conductor k -(ET)2Cu(NCS)2. We show that the magnetization oscillation pattern and the fast Fourier transform (FFT) spectrum of our measurements are well described theoretically within the coherent magnetic breakdown (MB) model for a two-dimensional Fermi surface consisting of two open sheets and closed pockets connected by magnetic breakdown centers. The spectrum of Landau quantized energy levels changes substantially due to the MB. Landau bands develop whose bandwidth and relative distance between them oscillate in inverse ...


Anomalous Conductance Distribution In Quasi-One-Dimensional Gold Wires: Possible Violation Of The One-Parameter Scaling Hypothesis, Pritiraj Mohanty, Richard A. Webb Mar 2002

Anomalous Conductance Distribution In Quasi-One-Dimensional Gold Wires: Possible Violation Of The One-Parameter Scaling Hypothesis, Pritiraj Mohanty, Richard A. Webb

Faculty Publications

We report measurements of conductance distribution in a set of quasi-one-dimensional gold wires. The distribution includes the second cumulant or the variance which describes the universal conductance fluctuations, and the third cumulant which denotes the leading deviation. We have observed an asymmetric contribution—or, a nonvanishing third cumulant—contrary to the expectation for quasi-one-dimensional systems in the noninteracting theories in the one-parameter scaling framework, which include the perturbative diagrammatic calculations and the random matrix theory.
