This setup holds promise for one-by-one electron transport and the establishment of an absolute current standard. While the charge transported per oscillation by the nanoscale island will be quantized in the Coulomb blockade regime, the frequency of such a shuttle depends sensitively on many parameters, leading to drift and noise. Instead of considering the nonlinearities introduced by the impact events as a nuisance, here we propose to exploit the resulting nonlinear dynamics to realize a highly precise oscillation frequency via synchronization of the shuttle self-oscillations to an external signal. We link the established phenomenological description of synchronization based on the Adler equation to the microscopic nonlinear dynamics of the electron shuttle by calculating the effective Adler constant analytically in terms of the microscopic parameters.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Moeckel, Michael J.</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Weig, Eva M.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Weig, Eva M.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Southworth, Darren R.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>New Journal of Physics ; 16 (2014). - 043009</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
