The full counting statistics in single electron transistors

Alessandro Braggio

Institut für Theoretische Physik III
Ruhr-Universität Bochum

The Full Counting Statistics(FCS) is becoming a new paradigm, in the electronic transport contest, to extract new informations about the physics of a certain system [1,2,3,4,5]. The seminar is a simple introduction to the basilar concepts used in these active research field. A diagrammatic approach to calculate the FCS of point contact, in the tunneling regime, is presented, reobtaining the results reported many years ago by Levitov [1,6]. The novelty of this approach is the possibility to generalize it, to study the FCS in the single electron tunneling set up beyond the sequential tunneling approximation [7,8].
