A technique utilizing changes in the conductance of a quantum wire to measure the detrapping time and density of electron traps is described. The technique permits the study of defects in heterostructure material over a wide range of doping levels and under a variety of conditions. The technique also introduces the possibility of studying one microsecond or faster (de)trapping times.
