Abstract

We demonstrate that ballistic electrons in ultra-high mobility two-dimensional electron systems can be controlled in ways analogous to the manipulation of photons in optical systems. Among the electron-optical structures we demonstrate are emitters, detectors, absorbers, and refractors. These advances may enable the design of new types of electronic circuits.
