Effect of non-classical current paths in networks of 1-dimensional wires
Other conference contribution, 1996

At low temperatures, the quantum corrections to the resistance due to weak localization and electron-electron interaction are affected by the shape and topology of samples. We observed these effects in the resistance of 2D percolation networks made from 1D wires and in a series of long 1D wires with regularly spaced side branches. Branches outside the classical current path strongly reduce the quantum corrections to the resistance and these reductions become a measure of the quantum lengths
