Three-terminal ballistic junctions: new building blocks for functional devices in nanoelectronics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

A three-terminal ballistic junction (TBJ) is a device in which three quantum point contacts are coupled via a ballistic region. Previous studies have shown that the TBJs exhibit a novel electrical property which has potential applications in nanoelectronics. Here, based on our recent theoretical and experimental investigations, we will demonstrate that various nanoelectronic devices can be fabricated using the TBJs as building blocks. In particular, the results of our recent design, fabrication, modeling and measurements of TBJ diodes and transistors, TBJ frequency multipliers, and TBJ logic gates will be presented and discussed
