Better Electronics from Silicon Corrals

Today's electronic devices are so small and so sensitive that even atomic In recent experiments we have shown that when a simple electronic device, a capacitor, is fabricated inside the corral, the device has significantly better performance than a capacitor fabricated on a regular silicon wafer, which is covered with atomic steps. The use of these corral structures may lead to the development of higher performance electronic devices.
