Abstract

The tutorial is based on the Coulomb Blockade Lab available online at Coulomb Blockade Lab. Students are introduced to the concepts of level broadening and charging energies in artificial atoms (single quantum dots) and molecules (coupled quantum dots).

A tutorial level introduction to the underlying theory can be found in chapters 5 and 6 of “Electron-Phonon and Electron-Electron Interactions in Quantum Transport”, Gerhard Klimeck, Ph.D. thesis, Purdue University, 1994.
