Single-electron transistor allows for nanoscale ‘Etch A Sketch’ designs of ultra-dense memories

April 19, 2011
Single Electron A University of Pittsburgh-led team has created a 1.5 nanometer single-electron transistor that provides a building block for ultra-dense computer memories, advanced electronic materials, and the basic components of quantum computers. The SketchSET (sketch-based single-electron transistor) is the first single-electron transistor made entirely of oxide-based materials, and consists of an island formation that can house up to … more…
