    Injection of mode-filtered electrons into a phase-sensitive four-terminal waveguide Aharonov-Bohm (AB) ring is studied. An individually tuneable quantum point contact (QPC) in a waveguide lead of the GaAs/AlGaAs-ring allows to selectively couple to one-dimensional modes in the ring. Thus, we...
