Abstract
Unidirectional lateral superlattices with a period a = 92 nm fabricated fro m two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) with mobility mu = 76 m(2)/V s show n ovel structures around v = 9/2 at low temperatures (50 mK less than or equa l to T less than or equal to 350 mK). A shallow and broad dent with peaks o n both sides appears when the direction of current is parallel to the direc tion of potential modulation, while a small peak emerges for the current di rection parallel to the stripes of the grating. The observed phenomena rese mble, albeit much smaller in magnitude, the anisotropic resistivity at half -filling of higher Landau levels recently observed in the plain 2DEGs with ultrahigh mobility and may be associated with the formation of charge densi ty wave (CDW).
