Conduction of Strongly Coupled Electrons Through Narrow Channels on Liquid Helium Surface: Simulation



The conduction of electrons through narrow channels formed on the surface of liquid helium is analyzed by numerical simulations. It is shown that, when electrons are strongly coupled, we have nonlinear and even negative dependence of conductance on the width of the constriction which is controlled by the gate voltage (© 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
