Current and noise suppression in ac-driven coherent transport

We investigate the possibility to manipulate for the transport through heterostructures the dc current and its noise properties by an ac gate voltage. For a computation of the noise strength, we map the system to a tight-binding model for which noise suppression by ac fields has been predicted recently. The quality of this description is tested by comparing the transmission of the tight-binding system with a transfer-matrix approach.
