Chaotic dot-superconductor analog of the Hanbury Brown Twiss effect

Published in Physical Review Letters. 2002, vol. 89, no. 4, p. 046601.1-046601.4
Abstract As an electrical analog of the optical Hanbury Brown Twiss effect, we study current cross-correlations in a chaotic quantum dot-superconductor junction. One superconducting and two normal reservoirs are connected via point contacts to a chaotic quantum dot. For a wide range of contact widths and transparencies, we find large positive current correlations. The positive correlations are generally enhanced by normal backscattering in the contacts. Moreover, for normal backscattering in the contacts, the positive correlations survive when suppressing the proximity effect in the dot with a weak magnetic field.
