Abstract

We investigate interferometry using a spatial adiabatic passage technique called Coherent Tunnelling Adiabatic Passage (CTAP) as the transport mechanism for an electron through a quantum dot network. The device shows an interesting interplay between adiabatic and non-adiabatic behaviour. In particular we show that CTAP may be used to realise an electron interferometer in a geometry analogous to an Electrostatic Aharonov-Bohm ring. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.
