Abstract

We investigate the ground and excited states of interacting electrons in a quantum point contact using an exact diagonalization method. We find that strongly localized states in the point contact appear when a new transverse conductance channel opens and longitudinal resonant level is formed due to momentum mismatch. These localized states form magnetic impurity states which are stable in a finite regime of chemical potential and excitation energy. Interestingly, these magnetic impurities have ferromagnetic coupling, which sheds light on the experimentally observed puzzling coexistence of Kondo correlation and spin filtering in a quantum point contact.
