Mesoscopic interferometers for electron waves

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


Mesoscopic interferometers are electronic analogues of optical interferometers, with "quantum point contacts" playing the role of optical beam splitters. Mesoscopic analogues of two-slit, Mach-Zehnder and Fabry-Perot interferometers have been built. A fundamental difference between electron and photon interferometry is that electron interferometry is nonlocal.
