Abstract
The well-established symmetry relations for linear transport phenomena cannot, in general, be applied in the nonlinear regime. Here we propose a set of symmetry relations with respect to bias voltage and magnetic field for the nonlinear conductance of two-terminal electric conductors. We experimentally confirm these relations using phase-coherent, semiconductor quantum dots.
