Quantum point contact


A Quantum Point Contact (QPC) is a narrow constriction between two wide electrically-conducting regions, of a width comparable to the electronic wavelength (nano- to micrometer). Quantum point contacts were first reported in 1988 by a Dutch group (Van Wees et al.) And, independently, by a British group (Wharam et al.).
