A hybrid superconducting quantum dot acting as an efficient charge and spin Seebeck diode

14 Sep 2016 Hwang Sun-Yong Sanchez David Lopez Rosa

We propose a highly efficient thermoelectric diode device built from the coupling of a quantum dot with a normal or ferromagnetic electrode and a superconducting reservoir. The current shows a strongly nonlinear behavior in the forward direction (positive thermal gradients) while it almost vanishes in the backward direction (negative thermal gradients)... (read more)
