Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 83)


he investigation of vertical electronic transport in semiconductor heterojunction systems has recently undergone a renaissance due to improved epitaxial techniques in a number of material systems. Presented in this paper are investigations into a number of novel vertical transport systems. Recent advanced in microfabrication techniques have allowed the realization of structures where lateral dimensions approach those achievable with epitaxial technology. Results of transport through structures with reduced dimensionality will be presented.
