Transport Properties of Coupled Semiconductor Quantum Dots
Abstract:We have measured the electronic transport properties of the coupled quantum dot devices at low temperatures. The interplay between the strong many body spin interaction and the molecular states are probed in linear and non-linear transport regime. We observe the formation of strong coherent molecular states clearly visible in the double dot conductance phase diagram. In our study, the spin configuration in multiply coupled quantum dots could be identified using Kondo phenomenon. In addition, the characteristics of the spin dependent molecular states and phase dependant tunneling have been also observed using non-linear conductance measurement of the double dots. The results suggest the importance of the diverse spin related physical issues in artificial quantum dot devices.
