Abstract

Using the Lindblad equation approach, we derive the range of the parameters of an interacting one-dimensional electronic chain connected to two reservoirs in the large bias limit in which an optimal working point (corre- sponding to a change in the monotonicity of the stationary current as a function of the applied bias) emerges in the nonequilibrium stationary state. In the specific case of the one-dimensional spinless fermionic Hubbard chain, we prove that an optimal working point emerges in the dependence of the stationary current on the coupling between the chain and the reservoirs, both in the interacting and in the noninteracting case. We show that the optimal working point is robust against localized defects of the chain, as well as against a limited amount of quenched disorder. Eventually, we discuss the importance of our results for optimizing the performance of a quantum circuit by tuning its components as close as possible to their optimal working point.
