Abstract : Under the support of the grant, we have (1) developed a variety of sub-20 nm nanofabrication techniques; (2) proposed and demonstrated a new field induced quantum dot transistor (QDTs), and observed conductance oscillations, the interplay between quantum and Coulomb effects, and oscillation peak splitting; (3) proposed and demonstrated two quantum wave bandstop filters; (4) demonstrated the first Si single-electron transistors and achieved record operation temperature; (5) demonstrated the first single hole transistors; and (6) modeled and simulated the operation of Si QDTs, quantum effects, Coulomb effects, and many-body effects.
