Conductance Fluctuations in Quantum Wires: Effects of Strong Spin-Orbit Interaction
Conductance fluctuations of quantum wires are studied numerically in the presence of a strong spin-orbit interaction. When the wire length is much smaller than the localization length, the fluctuation is reduced by a factor close to 1/2 of that in the absence of spin-orbit interaction. When the length is comparable to the localization length, the fluctuation is considerably enhanced.
