Quantum-dot thermometry

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

We present a method for the measurement of a temperature differential across a single quantum dot that has transmission resonances that are separated in energy by much more than the thermal energy. We determine numerically that the method is accurate to within a few percent across a wide range of parameters. The proposed method measures the temperature of the electrons that enter the quantum dot and will be useful in experiments that aim to test theory which predicts that quantum dots are highly efficient thermoelectrics.
