The conductance of the monatomic Al wires oscillates with the number of constituent atoms as a function of the wire length, either with a period of four atoms, for wires with the typical interatomic spacing, or with a period of six atoms, for wires with the interatomic spacing of bulk face centred cubic aluminium, indicating a dependence of the period of conductance oscillation on the interatomic spacing of the monatomic Al wires. © IOP Publishing Ltd.||Source Title:||Journal of Physics Condensed Matter||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/96060||ISSN:||09538984||DOI:||10.1088/0953-8984/19/5/056010|
