Exchange of information

Radiation of thermal voltage noise

The quantum thermal conductance is universal, independent of the nature of the material and the particles that carry the heat (electrons, phonons, photons) .

For a 1D system of noninteracting electrons with an unbounded strictly linear dispersion relation, k= F+vF(k-kF) the Hamiltonian can be bosonized to yield a bosonic Hamiltonian with equivalent properties.

We could also assume L R, LR

Relationship between the bosonic and fermionic models:

We could also bosonize the Hamiltonian with the nonlinear dispersion relation and obtain a bosonic Hamiltonian made of a single mode coupled to two anharmonic boson baths.

IV. Realizations: Exchange of energy between metals
  • (1) Phonon mediated energy transfer
  • Strong laser pulse gives rise to strong increase of the electronic temperature at the bottom metal surface. Energy transfers from the hot electrons to adsorbed molecule. Energy flows to the STM tip from the molecule.
  • No charge transfer
  • Only el-ph energy transfer from the molecule to the STM, ignore ph-ph contributions.

summary
Summary
  • We have studied single mode heat transfer between two metals with nonlinear dispersion relation and demonstrated thermal rectification.
  • In the linear dispersion case we calculated the energy current using bosonization, and within the Fermi Golden rule, and got same results.
  • The same parameter that measures the deviation from the linear dispersion relation, (or breakdown of the bosonization picture), measures the strength of rectification in the system.
  • In terms of bosons, the nonlinear dispersion relation translates into anharmonic thermal baths. Thus the onset of rectification in this model is consistent with previous results.
  • We discussed the proper definition of the heat flux operator in 1D models.

bosonization
Bosonization
  • Representing 1D Fermionic fields in terms of bosonic fields.
  • The reason is that all excitations are particle-hole like and therefore have bosonic character.
  • A powerful technique for studying interacting quantum systems in 1D.
