Abstract

Narrow channels containing a one-dimensional electron gas of finite length exhibit periodic conductance oscillations. We propose a microscopic theory of this phenomenon based on an exactly solvable, interacting-electron model. In contrast to previous models, the present theory is applicable irrespective of the relative magnitude of the electron-electron interaction energy and the single-particle energy-level spacing.
