Abstract

We report experimental results on charge transport in a low disorder and low density one-dimensional electron system. We find a gate tuned transition to an insulating phase at high magnetic fields and conductance oscillations as a function of density in this B-induced insulating phase. A careful study of the temperature dependence and the current-voltage characteristics of these conductance oscillations is made and the results fit the recent theoretical model of one-dimensional Wigner solid.
