Abstract

A brief review of ballistic transport in GaAs quantum wires is presented. Methods for fabricating and characterising wires of widths 0.1-1 μm are described. The new physics which emerged from measurements of electron transport in these wires is illustrated using conductance quantisation, quenching of the Hall effect, the negative bend resistance and diffuse boundary scattering as examples.
