Shot noise, which accompanies the emergence of the quantization nature (discreteness) of electrons, indicates dynamic fluctuations in electrical current and further reveals underlying operations in mesoscopic applications. This work presents a multichannel junction device with which to study the shot noise of coupled-channel transports as in normal nanocircuits, and it describes the theoretical algorithms. The numerical results show that, in contrast to the indistinguishable results of average current on direct-current measurements, the shot noise related to a dynamic current definitely exhibits significant differences among devices with diverse multichannel set-ups and presents super-Poissonian behaviors associated with the splitting of tunneling states.
