Energy and power fluctuations in ac-driven coherent conductors
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2014

Using a scattering matrix approach we study transport in coherent conductors driven by a time-periodic bias voltage. We investigate the role of electron-like and hole-like excitations created by the driving in the energy current noise and we reconcile previous studies on charge current noise in these kinds of systems. The energy noise reveals additional features due to electron-hole correlations. These features should be observable in power fluctuations. In particular, we show results for the case of a harmonic and biharmonic driving and of Lorentzian pulses applied to a two-terminal conductor, addressing recent experiments [Gabelli and Reulet, Phys. Rev. B 87, 075403 (2013) and Dubois et al., Nature (London) 502, 659 (2013)].
