We have used the scanning gate microscopy technique to image scar structures in an open quantum dot, fabricated in an InAs quantum well and defined by electron beam lithography. These are shown to have a periodicity in magnetic field that correlates with that found in the conductance fluctuations. Simulations have shown that these magnetic transform images bear a strong resemblance to actual scars found in the dots.
