Sketch of the thermo-electric transport nanodevice studied here. The nine leftmost and rightmost atoms are connected to thermal baths at temperature T H and T C, respectively. Due to this temperature imbalance, heat flows from the hot to the cold side equally through the two identical branches. This device will be used to study physical phenomena arising from local quantum observations. We tested similar devices with different geometries and lengths of the two branches. The conclusions drawn with the present configuration remain valid
