Dynamics of a nano-electromechanical rotor driven by single-electron tunneling — •Alan Celestino, Pablo Carlos López Vázquez, and Alexander Eisfeld — MPIPKS, Dresden, Germany

We discuss a nano-electromechanical rotor driven by single-electron tunneling. A possible realization could be a nanotube with quantum dots attached on its extremities, which can freely rotate about a double-walled nanotube axis. The system is driven using a bias voltage between source and drain contacts. Using a few relevant parameters one can set the rotor's dynamics to either intermittent oscillations/rotations or continuous rotational motion. The connection between the dynamical regimes and the current through the device is established. The effect of tuning initial conditions is also addressed, showing a bistable behaviour in the system's phase space. Among the possible applications of such device stand out the signal amplification, current rectification and viscosity measurements.
