In addition to quantized conductance plateaus at integer multiples of 2e2/h, the differential conductance G=dI/dV shows plateaus at 0.25(2e2/h) and 0.75(2e2/h) under applied source-drain bias in In0.75Ga0.25As quantum wires defined by insulated split gates. This observation is consistent with a spin-gap model for the 0.7 structure. Using a tilted magnetic field to induce Landau level crossings, the g factor was measured to be ~9 by the coincidence method. This material, with a mobility of 1.8×105 ...

Two-dimensional electron gases (2DEGs) were formed in undoped In0.75Al0.25As / In0.75Ga0.25As / In0.75Al0.25As quantum wells. The optimal growth temperature for this structure is 410°C, with peak 2DEG electron mobility and density values of μ = 221000 cm2/V s and n = 1.36 × 1011 cm−2 at 1.5 K. This electron mobility is equal to the highest previously published for these undoped structures but with a factor of 2 reduction in n. This has been achieved through the use of a ...
