[en] Using a simple quantum master equation approach, we calculate the full counting statistics of a single-electron transistor strongly coupled to vibrations. The full counting statistics contains both the statistics of integrated particle and energy currents associated with the transferred electrons and phonons. A universal as well as an effective fluctuation theorem are derived
for the general case where the various reservoir temperatures and chemical potentials are different. The first relates to the entropy production generated in the junction, while the second reveals internal information of the system. The model recovers the Franck–Condon blockade, and potential applications to noninvasive molecular spectroscopy are discussed.
