Undoped GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures in which carriers are attracted from the Ohmic contacts by a voltage bias on an insulated top gate allows higher mobilities to be obtained at lower electron densities than is possible with modulation doped heterostructures. However a two level gating scheme and an Ohmic contacting process that maximizes lateral diffusion are necessary to fully exploit the advantages of the undoped system for fabricating lower dimensional mesoscopic structures. Ionized background impurities (at low densities) and interface roughness (at high densities) are found to be the dominant sources of scattering. An approximate length scale set by the number of impurities the interfacial wave function intersects is observed in the magnetoconductance of two-dimensional mesoscopic regions.

    Multistate behavior has been achieved in quantum dot gate field-effect transistor (QDGFET) configurations using either SiO-cladded Si or GeO-cladded Ge quantum dots (QDs) with asymmetric dot sizes. An alternative method is to use both SiO-cladded Si and GeO-cladded Ge QDs in QDGFETs. In this...

    The number of quantum dots which nucleate at a certain place has to be controllable for device integration. It was shown that the number of quantum dots per nucleation site depends on the size of the hole in the substrate, but other dimensions of the nucleation site are vague. We report on the...
