At low temperatures, electrons in semiconductors can be phase coherent over distances exceeding several hundred microns, and are sufficiently monochromatic that a variety of interesting quantum interference phenomena can be observed and manipulated. This work discusses electron transport measurements through cavities (quantum dots) that are formed by laterally confining electrons in the two-dimensional sub-band of a GaAs/AlGaAs heterojunction. Metal gates fabricated using e-beam lithography… CONTINUE READING
