We theoretically investigate the evolution of the peak height of energy-resolved electronic wave-packets ballistically propagating along integer quantum Hall edge channels at filling factor equal to two.

We investigate this quantity assuming a short-range capacitive coupling between the edges. Moreover, we also phenomenologically take into account the possibility of energy dissipation towards additional degrees of freedom-both linear and quadratic-in the injection energy. Through a comparison with recent experimental data, we rule out the non-dissipative case as well as a quadratic dependence of the dissipation, indicating a linear energy loss rate as the best candidate for describing the behavior of the quasi-particle peak at short enough propagation lengths.

Abstract

We theoretically investigate the evolution of the peak height of energy-resolved electronic wave-packets ballistically propagating along integer quantum Hall edge channels at filling factor equal to two. This is ultimately related to the elastic scattering amplitude for the fermionic excitations evaluated at different injection energies. We investigate this quantity assuming a short-range capacitive coupling between the edges. Moreover, we also phenomenologically take into account the possibility of energy dissipation towards additional degrees of freedom-both linear and quadratic-in the injection energy. Through a comparison with recent experimental data, we rule out the non-dissipative case as well as a quadratic dependence of the dissipation, indicating a linear energy loss rate as the best candidate for describing the behavior of the quasi-particle peak at short enough propagation lengths.
