Current cross correlators in mesoscopic conductors

Samuelsson, Peter LU and Buettiker, Markus (2007) In Journal of Low Temperature Physics 146(1-2). p.115-133
Abstract
We present an investigation of current cross correlators in mesoscopic conductors. Making an analogy to the optical Hanbury Brown Twiss experiment we discuss how quantum statistical effects and two-particle interference effects can be investigated with current cross correlations. We also discuss how current cross correlations can be used for detecting two-particle entanglement and to perform quantum state tomography, a complete reconstruction of the density matrix of the quantum state emitted from a mesoscopic conductor.
