Probing the energy reactance with adiabatically driven quantum dots. (arXiv:1708.02856v1 [cond-mat.mes-hall])

The tunneling Hamiltonian describes a particle transfer from one region to the other. While there is no particle storage in the tunneling region itself, it has associated certain amount of energy. We name the corresponding flux energy reactance since, like an electrical reactance,…
