Abstract: We consider a system consisting of several correlated monoatomic layers sandwiched between two metallic leads. In addition to the local Hubbard interaction we also take the long-range Coulomb interaction into account, which causes electronic charge reconstruction in the correlated layers, as well as in the leads. The non-equilibrium situation is driven by applying a bias voltage to the leads. We investigate the steady-state behavior of the system for different parameters (bias voltage, interaction strength, hybridization strength between leads and the correlated heterostructure).
In particular, we present results for the steady-state current, spectral functions, and electronic charge reconstruction. Depending on the particular parameters we either observe a capacitor-like behavior or one dominated by charge transport. Furthermore, the Hubbard interaction has significant effect on the charge reconstruction.
In order to investigate steady-state properties we use real-space Dynamical mean-field theory (R-DMFT) [1,2] combined with the Poisson equation, both solved in a self-consistent fashion. To account for the charge reconstruction in the leads we include some lead layers explicitly in R-DMFT in addition to the correlated layers. As impurity solver for R-DMFT we use the recently developed auxiliary master equation approach (AMEA), which addresses the DMFT impurity problém within an auxiliary system consisting of a correlated impurity, a small number of uncorrelated bath sites and two Markovian environments described by a generalized Master equation [3-6].
