We present results of magnetotransport studies on quantum wires of submicron PbTe epilayers, fabricated by means of electron beam lithography and dry etching. When the wire width is reduced down to 1 μm, the transition from diffusive to ballistic regime is observed. Effects associated with collimation and boundary scattering are found in the Hall, longitudinal, and van der Pauw magnetoresistance for wires and junctions in the shape of a cross.
