Título:  Scattering Phase of Quantum Dots: Emergence of Universal Behavior

Palestrante: Rodolfo Jalabert (Estrasburgo - França)

Resumo: In a coherent conductor like a quantum dot, the transmission phase is of key importance in determining the transport properties. Unlike the conductance, the transmission phase is not directly measurable. Nevertheless, phase-sensitive experiments have been performed by embedding a quantum dot in one of the arms of an Aharonov-Bohm interferometer. These experiments, observing in-phase behavior between consecutive Coulomb-resonances, have remained unexplained for more than a decade. We provide a solution of this puzzle by showing that wave-function correlations existing in chaotic ballistic quantum dots are responsible for the emergence of large universal sequences of in-phase resonances in the short wavelength limit [1].

In quantum dots with at least one hundred electrons the description of Coulomb blockade physics within a constant charging energy model allows for an effective one-particle description. Smaller dots require going beyond mean-field approaches by including the effect of electronic correlations. We develop a numerical method, using the Density Matrix Renormalization Group algorithm, in order to obtain the transmission phase of a strongly interacting system. We demonstrate that electronic correlations do not generically lead to the in-phase behavior and that small dots are always in the mesoscopic regime of random relative transmission phases [2].
