Paper Abstract

As is well known, lateral superlattices on semiconductor vicinal planes are realized in 2D electron systems on high-index Miller surfaces. In this work we suggest a new method of development of vicinal superlattices in quantum wires on semiconductor low-index surfaces. For this purpose we suggest to orient the axis of the wire at the necessary angles to the basic translation vectors on a low-index surface (for instance, in the MOS system with the use of a narrow gate). In this case in the quantum wire the new basic translation period along the axis of the wire A< < a0 (ao - lauice constant) appears. Keywords: quantum wire, vicinal superlattice, low-index surface, energetic spectrum, nünigaps.
