The longitudinal and Hall resistivities in the quantum Hall effect (QHE) regime for n-InGaAs/GaAs nanostructures with single and double quantum wells are investigated at B=(0–16) T and T=(0.05–4.2) K, before and after IR-illumination. The features of the critical behavior of the longitudinal and Hall conductance in the plateau-plateau regions are studied to identify the conditions of experimental observation of the scaling mode. Temperature dependences of QHE plateau-to-plateau transition width are analyzed on a base of two-parameter scaling theory.
