dc.description.abstractSince the discovery of conductance quantization within a nanostnucture, investigations have sought out causes to conductance fluctuations beyond the established plateaus. The focus of this work is to show the fundamental effects upon conductance due to longitudinal potentials and double quantum boxes when confined by hardwall boundaries. A theoretical model based upon a tight-binding recursive tureen's function methodology was modified to incorporate potential barrier variations. A qualitative evaluation, as well as, explanation of the model's results and limitations is discussed.
