Coulomb blockade in a quantum wire with long-range interactions

We study the transport through two impurities in a one-dimensional quantum wire, taking account of long-range Coulomb interactions. We compute the temperature-dependent conductance G(T). Long-range forces lead to a dramatic increase of weak barrier potentials with decreasing temperature, even on “resonance”. The system thus always reaches a “strong barrier” regime in which only the charge is pinned, contrary to the standard Luttinger liquid. G(T) vanishes faster than any power as T goes to zero. In particular, resonant tunneling is suppressed at zero temperature.
