"Symmetry breaking for ratchet transport in the presence of interactions and a magnetic field"

We study the microwave induced ratchet transport of two-dimensional electrons on an oriented semidisk Galton board. The magnetic field symmetries of ratchet transport are analyzed in the presence of electron-electron interactions. Our results show that a magnetic field asymmetric ratchet current can appear due to two contributions, a Hall drift of the rectified current that depends only weakly on electron-electron interactions and a breaking of the time reversal symmetry due to the combined effects of interactions and magnetic field. In the latter case, the asymmetry between positive and negative magnetic fields vanishes in the weak interaction limit. We also discuss the recent experimental results on ratchet transport in asymmetric nanostructures.
