Abstract

Low temperature magneto-conductance has been studied in ballistic dot arrays using corrugation splitgates. We have obseved many peaks at low fields superimposed upon the large negative magneto-resistance in double sided corrugation wires. These peaks can be considered to arise from three different phase breaking phenomena for coherent electron waves in ballistic quantum dots: weak localization in the quasi-ballistic regime, periodic oscillations due to coherent interferences and electron focusing of collimated electron waves. The three phenomena have been discussed in terms of their phase breaking behavior in dot arrays.
