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

    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 ?

    Basically this is my experiment

    Trouble is I've just realised there is so much theory behind this.. I just don't know how in much depth I need to go.

    What are the important theories behind such an experiment? Where does one begin?
