Bottom-up assembled nanowires receive an increasing interest as possible candidates for future semiconductor nanoscale devices. Especially InN nanowires are interesting due to their surface accumulation layer which inhibits Schottky barriers [1]. Yet, contact resistances prove to be spread in a wide range as can be shown in multi-terminal measurements.

At low temperatures phase-coherence leads to universal conductance fluctuations in the magnetoconductance. While they are fully symmetric in a two-terminal setup this feature is gradually lost when turning to three- or four-terminal measurements. Using the latter configuration the temperature dependence of the electron phase-coherence in the nanowire itself can be determined, i.e. without any contact resistance contribution.
