Beenakker, C. W. J. and Schomerus, Henning (2001) Counting Statistics of Photons Produced by Electronic Shot Noise. Physical Review Letters, 86 (4). pp. 700-703. ISSN 1079-7114
A theory is presented for the photodetection statistics of radiation produced by current fluctuations in a phase-coherent conductor. Deviations are found from the Poisson statistics that would result from a classical current. For detection in a narrow frequency interval Î´Ï�, the photocount distribution has the negative-binomial form of blackbody radiation if eÎ´Ï� is less than the mean current IÌ in the conductor. When electronic localization sets in, IÌ drops below eÎ´Ï� and a different type of super-Poissonian photon statistics results.
