Abstract

The electrical conductance of one-dimensional (1D) electrons confined in the channels created on the surface of liquid helium was measured as a function of temperature down to 50 mK. A peak around 0.2 K, which was the evidence for 1D character originating in the intersubband transitions, was observed for the first time. The result of the temperature dependence is in agreement with an existing theory for 1D electron system. Below 0.2 K, the electrons occupy the ground state and behave as nearly ideal 1D system.
