Paper Abstract

The conductance of nano-sized, surface disordered wires is theoretically analyzed all the way during an elongation process. Even though wire cross-section is kept constant during the whole process, the statistical analysis of the conductance reveals clear preference to take values close to integer multiples of the conductance quantum. We show that this is a consequence of having a very small number of channels and surface disorder only.
