Program Highlights for year 2012

Gating Individual Dopants with an Individual Defect in Semiconductors

Research

One factor limiting the scaling and reproducibility of device elements in computer processors is the random distribution of dopants in semiconductor nanostructures. To overcome this obstacle for faster computing, new ways to position and address individual dopants are needed. Proposals for next-generation computing based on quantum
