Quantised Conductance

  1. Feb 9, 2005 #1
    HI, I'm carrying out an experiment involving 2 "nanowires" of gold to investigate the quantisation of conductance. Does anyone know of any websites/papers the delve into the fundamentals?. Most papers I have read just go on about STM techniques

    Thanks

    Are your wires made by gating 2DEGs or are they grown as wires ? And are you measuring a scattering effect (inter-wire drag) or something else ?

    Can you describe in more detail what your experiment involves ?

    You can do it by bouncing gold wires against eachother (Costa-Krämer).
    Or you can use the gold contacts in electrical relays:
