Resonant transport of bosonic carriers through a quantum device

Muraev, P. S.; Maksimov, D. N.; Kolovsky, A. R. // Physical Review A//


We analyze the current of Bose particles across a tight-binding chain connected at both ends to the particles' reservoirs. Unlike the standard open Bose-Hubbard model, where the presence of reservoirs is taken into account by the Lindbladians acting on the first and last sites of the chain, we use semimicroscopic models for the reservoirs. This allows us to address the case of arbitrary reservoir temperature. In particular, we discuss the phenomenon of the resonant transmission for nearly condensed bosons, where the current across the chain is significantly enhanced for certain values of the gate voltage.
