Quantum physics in in quantum dots
Prof. Dr. Klaus Ensslin (ETH-Z├╝rich): Electrons in quantum dots are confined in all three spatial dimensions. In semiconduc-tors the confinement potential, the number of the electrons and the tunnel coupling of the quantum dot to the outside world can be tuned by gate electrodes. With suitable detec-tors it is possible to monitor the current through the quantum dot in a time-resolved fash-ion on the level of individual electrons allowing ultra-sensitive current and noise meas-urement.
