Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Illumination of far infrared radiation causes remarkable influence on the transport through quantum dots in high magnetic field via cyclotron resonance. An electron-hole pair excited within the dot induces internal polarization of the quantum dot that causes the conductance peaks in Coulomb blockade oscillations to shift appreciably. This effect will open up the possibility of single electron detection of the far-infrared radiation.
