Abstract

We have found strong deviations from Poissonian behavior in the low-temperature noise characteristics of triple-barrier and superlattice heterostructures. Although our results can be explained qualitatively by existing models, a quantitative comparison between experiment and theory suggests an incomplete understanding of shot noise in multi-barrier systems.
