Abstract

Narrow channel devices were fabricated using a split-gate high electron mobility transistor structure in which electrons are forced through a double-bend discontinuity. The low-temperature conductance shows a number of peaks in the lowest quantized conductance plateau which correspond qualitatively to resonance effects that are predicted for the geometrical discontinuities of the double bend.
