This project aims to investigate the non-equilibrium phenomena near the quantum critical point presented in the two-channel Kondo problem. In this problem, the criticality emerge due to the competition between the two independent channels to screen the localized moment in a quantum dot. Such choice was motivated by recent experimental results in nanostructures, which describe the two-channel Kondo phase and quantum transport properties of the quantum critical region as a function of the temperature and the gate voltage. To obtain the spectral density and the differential conductance in and out-of-equilibrium, we will use the time-Dependent Density Matrix Renormalization Group. This method yields essentially exact results with relatively small computation efforts. Based on the differential conductance, we will analyze universal and non-universal effects around the quantum critical point.
