dc.description.abstract We numerically investigate a total transmission probability through QDs embedded in an AB ring. The QDs are formed by delta function-like double potential barriers and a magnetic flux is penetrated in the center of the ring. In particular, we study the coupled double-QDs in series and non-coupled double-QDs in parallel in an AB ring. In each model, we show the total transmission probability as a function of QD size and electron incident energy, and present the transmission amplitude on the complex-energy plane. Of interest is the change and progression of Fano resonances and corresponding zero-pole pairs on the complex-energy plane with magnetic flux in the center of the ring.To accomplish this, we analytically solve the scattering matrix at each junction and the transfer matrix through the arms of the ring using Schrodinger equation for the delta function barriers. Then, the total transmission probability is obtained as a function of electron energy and magnetic flux by cascading these matrices. Finally, the solutions of the analytical equations and the graphical output of the transmission characteristics in the system will be obtained numerically by using Mathematica programs run on desktop computers.
