Abstract

We investigate the transport fluctuations in both non-relativistic quantum dots and graphene quantum dots with both hyperbolic and nonhyperbolic chaotic scattering dynamics in the classical limit. We find that nonhyperbolic dots generate sharper resonances than those in the hyperbolic case. Strikingly, for the graphene dots, the resonances tend to be much sharper. This means that transmission or conductance fluctuations are characteristically greatly enhanced in relativistic as compared to non-relativistic quantum systems. Copyright (C) EPLA, 2011
