Spin Thermoelectric Effects in a Strongly Correlated Double Quantum Dot System

Title variants
Languages of publication
Spin thermoelectric effects through a strongly correlated double quantum dot system embedded in a Aharonov-Bohm ring coupled to two leads with Rashba spin-orbit coupling have been investigated theoretically by means of the finite-U slave-boson technique. This method provides a reliable description of electron transport through quantum dot systems in the low temperature regime T ≪ T_{K}, where T_{K} is the so-called Kondo temperature. Particular emphasis is put on the possibility of the so-called spin Seebeck effect in such a system as a more sensitive probe of the Kondo state.
