Abstract 



We theoretically investigate the electronic transport properties of two closely spaced Lshaped semiconductor quantum wires, for different configurations of the output channel widths as well as the distance between the wires. Within the effectivemass approximation, we solve the timedependent Schrodinger equation using the splitoperator technique that allows us to calculate the transmission probability, the total probability current, the conductance, and the wave function scattering between the energy subbands. We determine the maximum distance between the quantum wires below which a relevant nonzero transmission is still found. The transmission probability and the conductance show a strong dependence on the width of the output channel for small distances between the wires. (C) 2015 AIP Publishing LLC.
