Single electron transistor created with tiny mechanical arm

Abstract:
The infinitesimal size and low power requirements of a single electron transistor (SET), created by Electrical and Computer Engineering Associate Professor Robert Blick and physicist Dominik Scheible of Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich, could eventually lead to advances such as much tinier semiconductor chips; more powerful yet less power-hungry cell phones; and long-lived remote sensors for monitoring everything from airborne toxins to forest fires. And unlike earlier SETs, the device is fabricated in silicon by a simple, two-step process and operates at room — rather than super-low — temperatures, allowing its easy integration into existing, silicon-based circuits, says Blick.
