Abstract

We report on the motion of two-dimensional electrons in a magnetic field which is periodic on the scale of a few hundred nanometres. Such a system exhibits novel magnetoresistance oscillations that we unambiguously identify as due to a commensurability effect between the period of the magnetic field and the diameter of the cyclotron orbit. We find that a semiclassical picture of electron motion can quantitatively describe all of the observed experimental features. We also propose methods of optimizing the effects of the magnetic modulation in hybrid semiconductor-superconductor devices.
