Low-temperature transport experiments on a quantum point contact under the influence of a scanning gate are reported. The scanning gate is the metallic tip of a scanning force microscope operating at a temperature of 300 mK. In particular, the influence of the scanning tip on conductance resonances observed in the gate-characteristics of the point contact is studied. The strongest conductance ...
