Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Tunneling between vertically stacked quantum wires has been investigated. The wires are assumed to have the dimension perpendicular to the tunneling barrier much smaller than the other transverse dimension, so that only the lowest mode in such direction is to be taken into account, while many modes in the other direction are filled. A model with hard-wall confinement has been used for the investigation of the transport problem, and the tunneling conductance has been computed, via a recursive Green's functions procedure.
