Single Electron Tunneling

Single Electron Tunneling

(electronics)
(SET) A New electrical standard for capacitance.

SET devices can be used to construct circuits which process information by manipulating individual electrons. SET devices are small, dissipate little power, and can detect exquisitely small quantities of charge. The small size and low power dissipation of SET circuits makes them potentially useful for the Information Technology industry.
