We investigate current fluctuations in a three-terminal quantum dot in the sequential tunneling regime. Dynamical spin blockade can be induced when the spin-degeneracy of the dot states is lifted by a magnetic field. This results in super-Poissonian shot noise and positive zero-frequency cross-correlations. Our proposed setup can be realized with semiconductor quantum dots.

The quasiclassical theory of superconductivity provides the most successful description of diffusive heterostructures comprising superconducting elements, namely, the Usadel equations for isotropic Green’s functions. Since the quasiclassical and isotropic approximations break down close to interfaces, the Usadel equations have to be supplemented with boundary conditions for isotropic Green’s functions (BCIGF), which are not derivable within the quasiclassical description. For a long time, the BCIGF were available only for spin-degenerate tunnel contacts, which posed a serious limitation on the applicability of the Usadel description to modern structures containing ferromagnetic elements. In this paper, we close this gap and derive spin-dependent BCIGF for a contact encompassing superconducting and ferromagnetic correlations. This final...

The nucleotide sequence of a 81 493 bp contig from Arabidopsis thaliana chromosome III has been determined together with 11 corresponding cognate cDNAs. Analysis of the finished sequence and comparison with public databases indicates a gene density of one gene per 4527 bp and identifies 17 novel genes, 10 of which are totally unknown or have no well-defined function. In addition, the contig contains part of a non-LTR retrotransposon and large direct and inverted repeats. Contig analysis also provides information on the structure and genomic organization of plant genes.
