Localized charge bifurcation in the coupled quantum dots
We analyzed theoretically localized charge relaxation in a double quantum dot (QD) system coupled with continuous spectrum states in the presence of localized electrons Coulomb interaction in a single QD. We have found that for a wide range of system parameters charge relaxation occurs through two stable regimes with significantly different relaxation rates. A peculiar time moment exists in the system at which rapid switching between stable regimes takes place. We consider this phenomenon to be applicable for creation of active elements in nano-electronics based on the fast transition effect between two stable states.
