Persistent current and electron transport through ultra-thin networks
"The first part of this dissertation focuses on the evaluation of three examples of the persistent current of reducible and irreducible networks and shows that bonding and anti-bonding orbital can exist in an irreducible network when applied magnetic fluxes are varied. The probability of traversing through the common path by the electron can be controlled by the two applied fluxes. It shows that an electron traverses through the irreducible network with a fractional charge as manifested in the flux periodicity that is experimentally observable. The second part focuses on the electron transport through three types of two entangled Aharonov-Bohn (AB) rings with a various number of terminals. Those coupled AB rings form quantum resistor networks of reducible and irreducible types"--Abstract, leaf iii.
