Enhanced thermopower in the transient regime

Fig.1: Increase of the Seebeck coefficient in the transient regime of a metal/dot/metal junction. Collaboration with A. Crépieux, CPT Marseille We derived formal expressions of time-dependent energy and heat currents through a nanoscopic device using the Keldysh nonequilibrium Green function technique. Numerical results are reported for a metal/dot/metal junction where the dot level energy is abruptly changed...
