Single Electron Transistor: Applications & Problems

  title={Single Electron Transistor: Applications & Problems},
  author={Om Kumar and Manjit Kaur},
The goal of this paper is to review in brief the basic physics of nanoelectronic device single-electron transistor [SET] as well as prospective applications and problems in their applications. SET functioning based on the controllable transfer of single electrons between small conducting "islands". The device properties dominated by the quantum mechanical properties of matter and provide new characteristics coulomb oscillation, coulomb blockade that is helpful in a number of applications. SET… CONTINUE READING
