The low-temperature quantum transport of InN nanowires grown by plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy is investigated. Two sets of nanowires with diameters of 100 and 45 nm originating from two different growth runs are studied. Magnetic-field-dependent as well as gate-dependent measurements of universal conductance fluctuations are performed to gain information on the phase-coherence in the electron transport. By analyzing the correlation field and the average fluctuation amplitude a phase-coherence length of several hundred nanometers is extracted for both sets of nanowires at temperatures below 1 K. Conductance fluctuations are also observed when the Fermi wavelength is varied by applying a bias voltage to a back-gate. The results on the electron phase-coherence obtained from the gate-dependent measurements are consistent with the findings from the magnetic field dependent …
