Spin Dependent Fano Resonances in a Rashba System with Coulomb Interactions

Title variants
Languages of publication
The effects of interplay of interference of quantum mechanical electron waves and their mutual Coulomb interactions are investigated in the device composed of interacting quantum dot attached to polarized leads via quantum point contacts with the Rashba interaction. The Zeeman-split dot sub-levels form two interfering channels and as a result spin dependent Fano resonances arise in the conductance through the system. The Coulomb repulsion between the channels modifies the width and shape of the Fano resonances as compared to the non-interacting case. We formulate the Fano expression dependent on the dot's occupancy regulated by the Coulomb interactions.
