Abstract

Recent experimental studies on quantum wires subjected to a doubly-corrugated gate displayed periodic oscillations in the weak field magneto-resistance [1]. The presence of peaks in the magneto-resistance were associated with specific ballistic backscattered trajectories that were highly sample (and thus geometry) dependent. In this paper we describe simulations of such structures.
