We investigate ballistic transport and quantum interference in a nanoscale quantum wire loop fabricated as a GaAs/AlGaAs field-effect heterostructure [1]. Our device consists of two equally wide electron waveguides, a bent and a straight one, which orthogonally intersect twice forming an asymmetric ring like structure. Four-terminal measurements of current and voltage characteristics as a function of top gate voltages show negative remote bend resistance as a clear signature of ballistic transport. In perpendicular magnetic fields phase-coherent transport leads to Aharonov-Bohm (AB) conductance oscillations which show equal amplitudes in the local and the non-local measurement at a temperature of 1.5 K and above. We attribute this novel observation to the symmetry of the orthogonal cross junctions connecting the four quantum wire leads with the asymmetric quantum wire ring. [1] S.S. Buchholz, S.F. Fischer, U.
