    Abstract

    The low-T magnetotransport measurements in a GaAs/AlGaAs two-dimensional electron system (2DES), at a distance of 32 nm below the surface were analyzed. The sample studied was grown by molecular beam epitaxy, and consisted of a GaAs/Al0.3Ga0.7As heterostructure with a 2DES. The diagonal resistivity displayed a rich pattern of fluctuations, even though the disorder dominates over the periodic modulation, for low Landau level fillings v. The data was explained by the theoretical arguments based on the combined effects of the long-wavelength, strong disorder and the short-wavelength, weak periodic modulation present in the 2DES.
