摘要: We present numerical studies of the transmission properties in an L-shaped quantum waveguide (LQW) subject to an inhomogeneous magnetic field perpendicular to the LQW plane. The magnetic field remains zero at the corner region, thus, a magnetically defined cavity is formed in this LQW. We find that transmission characteristics of electrons in the LQW depend strongly on geometric parameters and magnetic configurations. Sharp peaks with unity amplitude and deep dips are observed in transmission as a function of the Fermi energy of the incident electron at some high fields. The mode-mode coupling between the wires and the cavity and multiple reflection of electrons in the cavity lead to the appearance of these structures in transmission spectrum. We also study the variation of transmission with magnetic field for different magnetic confinement configurations when fixing incident electron energy. In the magnetic depletion process of the propagating modes in wires, the transmission exhibits various patterns, such as stepped drop, wide valley, deep dips, large oscillations, or without any structure, sensitively dependent on incident electron energy and magnetic confinement configurations. It is expected that one can flexibly modify transmission spectrum of the LQW by applying an inhomogeneous magnetic field to match practical requirements. (C) 1999 American Institute of Physics.
