ABSTRACT

A single-electron transistor consists of a small conducting island connected to the source and drain leads by tunnel junctions and connected to one or more gates. The nanometre scale conductive island is embedded in an insulating material. Gate signals are capacitive coupled to the island. Two gate signals can be applied to the island out of which one is optional. Here, only one electron can tunnel from source to drain. The processes that take place in this island (nano structure) are coulomb blockade phenomenon and single electron tunnelling.
