Current fluctuation theorems under incomplete monitoring — •Thilo Krause, Gernot Schaller, and Tobias Brandes — Institut für Theoretische Physik, Technische Universität Berlin, Berlin
We demonstrate the validity of the fluctuation theorem for a double quantum dot surrounded by four terminals within the Born-, Markov- and secular approximations beyond the Coulomb-blockade regime. The electronic tunneling to two fermionic contacts conserves the total number of electrons, and the internal tunneling is phonon-assisted by two bosonic baths. Adapted choice of thermodynamic parameters between the baths may drive a current against an existing electric or thermal gradient. We study the apparent violation of the fluctuation theorem when only some of the energy and matter currents are monitored.
