We studied quantum interference effects observed in the low-temperature magnetoresistance of corrugation gated wires on a two-dimensional electron gas system. We have also studied the transport change due to deep gate depletion by means of the controlling gate voltage. We analyzed the gate voltage and magnetic field dependences of the negative magnetoresistance and observed small oscillations in the low-field magnetoresistances. The results show that a boundary-related or geometrical effect should strongly affect the phase-breaking mechanism in corrugation gated wires, and that the electron wave propagation differs between a narrow wire and a dot array, depending on the gate voltage.
