Characterization of single -electron tunneling transistor

Chong Jiang, University of Massachusetts Amherst


Normal-Superconductor-Superconductor (NSS) single-electron tunneling (SET) transistors were studied. A hysteresis in the current versus gate voltage curve was found in a SET transistor and SET trap hybrid system. This hybrid system can be used as a new type of memory cell in electronics. The inferred junction capacitance, as extracted from the nonlinear current-voltage characteristics, was measured as a function of magnetic field and temperature. Noise issue in SET transistor was studied as well.
