抄録

Nonequilibrium current fluctuation is theoretically studied through a multilevel quantum dot in the Coulomb blockade regime, where the higher-order tunneling processes, "cotunneling," are dominant in the transport. The current fluctuation shows a Poisson (super-Poisson) noise in the elastic (inelastic) cotunneling regime when the bias voltage eV between the leads is smaller (larger) than the excitation energy Δ from the ground level in the quantum dot. The super-Poisson noise is remarkably enhanced by the degeneracy of the excited states around the beginning of inelastic cotunneling at eV ≈ Δ, qualitatively in good agreement with a recent experimental result. An analytical expression is given for the current fluctuation as a function of degeneracy.
