What is Quantum Point Contact?
QPC (Quantum Point Contact), calculates the conductance and associated wavefunctions for electron waves flowing through one or more quantum point contacts, as a function of either bottom potential or magnetic field. It uses a transfer/scattering matrix approach to get the coefficients that enter the Landauer formula to get the conductance. The quantum point contact that has been implemented is based on a model suggested by Ando.
