Memory effects in non-interacting mesoscopic transport    [PDF]

Horia D. Cornean, Arne Jensen, Gheorghe Nenciu
Consider a quantum dot coupled to two semi-infinite one-dimensional leads at thermal equilibrium. We turn on adiabatically a bias between the leads such that there exists exactly one discrete eigenvalue both at the beginning and at the end of the switching procedure. It is shown that the expectation on the final bound state strongly depends on the history of the switching procedure. On the contrary, the contribution to the final steady-state corresponding to the continuous spectrum has no memory, and only depends on the initial and final values of the bias.
