We demonstrated that a triple-gated GaAs quantum point contact, which has an additional surface gate between a pair of split gates to strengthen the lateral confinement, produces the well-defined quantized conductance and Fabry-Pérot-type (FP-type) oscillations on it even using a relatively low mobility wafer. A one-dimensional phenomenological model potential was developed to explain the oscillatory behavior. By combining the model calculations and dc bias spectroscopy, we obtained a detailed information about the energy scales of the oscillatory structures. The relationships between the FP-type oscillations and the anomaly below the first plateau will be addressed.
