Disclosed is a novel device which exploits the interference of coherent electron waves. This device is quasi-one-dimensional superlattice comprising a narrow channel modulated by a series of punched holes or annuli. This device combines the effects of a periodic potential fluctuation with the Aharonov-Bohm effect.
