Since the second half of 80’s, quantum dot systems has been extensively studied worldwide, both theoretically and experimentally, proving to be a convenient playground for explorations of the fundamental physical phenomena at the nanoscale. Nowadays, while we are inevitably approaching the end of the miniaturization era in the traditional electronics, these ultra-small devices pave the way into the quantum world and give a prospect of potential applications in modern nanoelectronics, spintronics and information processing technology.
Electron spin degree of freedom is a central concept in our research. The studies are focused on the theoretical description of charge and spin transport properties of a low-dimensional structures like quantum dots systems, single atoms and molecules. We analyze both equilibrium and non-equilibrium regimes, thermal transport and diverse time-dependent phenomena.
