AbstractTwo distinct types of magnetoresistance oscillations are observed in two electronic Fabry-Perot interferometers of different sizes in the integer quantum Hall regime. Measuring these oscillations as a function of magnetic field and gate voltages, we describe three signatures that distinguish the two types. The oscillations observed in a \(2.0\mu m^2\) device are understood to arise from a Coulomb blockade mechanism and those observed in an \(18\mu m^2\) device from an Aharonov-Bohm mechanism. This work clarifies, provides ways to distinguish, and demonstrates control over these distinct mechanisms of oscillations seen in electronic Fabry-Perot interferometers.
