dot through an empty channel, in which the electron ‘surfs’ on the acoustic wave. Hermelin et al. and McNeil et al. demonstrated successful single-electron transfer between the dots by detecting coincident emission and capture at both dots. These were detected with devices that are routinely used for charge detection in quantum dots: sensitive electrometers… CONTINUE READING
