Theory of double Cooper-pair tunneling and light emission mediated by a resonator (2019)
Journal Article
Morley, W. T., Di Marco, A., Mantovani, M., Stadler, P., Belzig, W., Rastelli, G., & Armour, A. (in press). Theory of double Cooper-pair tunneling and light emission mediated by a resonator. Physical Review B,

Photon emission by tunneling electrons can be encouraged by locating a resonator close to the tunnel junction and applying an appropriate voltage-bias. However, studies of normal metals show that the resonator also affects how the charges flow, facil... Read More
