Abstract
The effect of different tunneling modulations on the quantized conductance in a coupled double electron waveguide is theoretically investigated with the use of a model of two coupled chains. The calculated results show that both the accuracy of the quantization in the conductance and the resonance pattern strongly depend on the tunneling modulation between two channels. The resonance structures in the conductance plateaus are smeared when the corresponding tunneling modulation alters smoothly over the obstacle region. We also study the variation of the quantized conductance with the Fermi energy for various doubly-connected structures. A series of new novel features in the conductance curve emerge. We find that this two coupled chain model is shown to describe the essence of quantum ballistic transport of electrons in the two coupled electron waveguide in a simple and transparent way.
