We provide a systematic quantitative description of the structure of edge states and magnetosubband evolution in hard-wall quantum wires in the integer quantum Hall regime. Our calculations are based on the self-consistent Green's function technique where the electron and spin interactions are included within the density functional theory in the local spin density approximation. We analyze the evolution of the magnetosubband structure as magnetic field varies and show that it exhibits different…

Hysteresis and spin phase transitions in quantum wires in the integer quantum Hall regime
We demonstrate that a split-gate quantum wire in the integer quantum Hall regime can exhibit electronic transport hysteresis for up- and down-sweeps of a magnetic field. This behavior is shown to be
Conductance quantization suppression in the quantum Hall regime
The authors show that the quantization in graphene nanoconstrictions with low edge disorder is suppressed in the quantum Hall regime, explained by the addition of new conductance channels due to electrostatic screening.
