The first single-electron transistor is real
posted July 6 2011 19:09.26 by Giorgos Lazaridis




This great innovation will likely change electronics as we know: A team of researchers from the University of Pittsburgh managed to assemble a single-electron transistor, the first of its kind! It is entirely made from oxide-based materials, and opens new horizons for future generation of extremely powerful quantum computers.


Science daily writes:
[...]the transistor's central component -- an island only 1.5 nanometers in diameter -- operates with the addition of only one or two electrons. That capability would make the transistor important to a range of computational applications, from ultradense memories to quantum processors, powerful devices that promise to solve problems so complex that all of the world's computers working together for billions of years could not crack them.
