Quatratran - Helping to make The World a safer place

Abstract:
Since the development of superconducting electronic devices there has been a need to develop a three terminal transistor like device sensitive enough to measure small voltage and current signals typical of those associated with single electron and photon events. A group of researchers in the Department of Particle & Nuclear Physics at Oxford University has designed a superconducting device with properties analogous to those of a traditional semiconducting transistor. The Quatratran (Quasiparticle Trapping Transistor) has the ability to amplify small signals and also be utilised as an electronic switch.
