Ghost imaging lidar via sparsity constraintsMar 17 2012For remote sensing, high-resolution imaging techniques are helpful to catch more characteristic information of the target. We extend pseudo-thermal light ghost imaging to the area of remote imaging and propose a ghost imaging lidar system. For the first ... More

Photon assisted tunneling through three quantum dots with spin-orbit-couplingFeb 24 2014The effect of an ac electric field on quantum transport properties in a system of three quantum dots, two of which are connected in parallel while the third is coupled to one of the other two, is investigated theoretically. Based on the Keldysh nonequilibrium ... More
