Specific features of controlled relocation of charge carriers in nanostructures based on tunnelingcoupled quantum regions formed by GaAs/AlGaAs heterojunctions are considered. The results of numerical simulation of dynamics of controlled tunneling relocation of the maximum in the amplitudes of wave functions of charge carriers are discussed.
