Abstract

The quantum mechanical effect of electric charge in a nondissipative mesoscopic capacitance coupling circuit is studied and the condition for Coulomb blockade (CCB) is derived. It is pointed out that the CCB is related not only to the junction capacitance, but also to the inductance. The quantum fluctuation of this circuit is also discussed.
