1112.0083 (Ph. A. Jacquet et al.)

Temperature and Voltage Probes Far from Equilibrium    [PDF]

Ph. A. Jacquet, C. -A. Pillet
We consider an open system of free electrons consisting of a small sample
connected to several reservoirs and temperature or voltage probes. We study the
non-linear system of equations which determines the probe parameters. We show
that it has a unique solution which can be computed with a fast converging
iterative algorithm. We illustrate our method with two well-known models: the
three-terminal system and the open Aharovov-Bohm interferometer.
