Lal, Siddhartha and Rao, Sumathi and Sen, Diptiman (2002) Transport in quantum wires. In: Pramana-Journal of Physics, 58 (2). pp. 205-216.
With a brief introduction to one-dimensional channels and conductance quantization in mesoscopic systems, we discuss some recent experimental puzzles in these systems, which include reduction of quantized conductances and an interesting odd--even effect in the presence of an in-plane magnetic field. We then discuss a recent non-homogeneous Luttinger liquid model proposed by us, which addresses and gives an explanation for the reduced conductances and the odd--even effect. We end with a brief summary and discussion of future projects.
