PROJECT OVERVIEW: Charge Stability and Density of States Fluctuations Modeling in a Single Atom Transistor


  • Charge stability diagram/Coulomb diamond key device metric of single atom transistor
  • Can we model the atomistic effects in the single atom transistor’s Coulomb diamond?


  • Rate-equation formalism
  • Atomistic modeling (density of states, single phosphorus dopant energy states)


  • DOS fluctuations in leads major reason for observed “streaks” in experimental Coulomb diamond
  • Asymmetric lead-to-channel coupling and inelastic scattering affect Coulomb diamond’s shape / streak profile
  • Manuscript in preparation (Tan, et. al.)
