Transport measurements are reported for a two-dimensional electron gas subject to a finite lateral superlattice potential. Devices are fabricated in high mobility GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures with modulation periods in the range of 2000-3000 Å and differing numbers of gates. Conductance plateaus are observed at gate voltages where the thermopower is stationary. These features indicate the possible formation of effective one-dimensional conductance channels through the potential landscape formed by the lateral gates. The plateau conductances are much less than the basic quantum unit (2e2/h).
