Using the green beam to switch the orange output beam from weak to strong is analogous to the way a transistor's control electrode switches a current between "on" and "off" voltages, and hence the 0s and 1s of digital data.
They did discuss problems with values when the control electrode is placed on the chest and for this reason we typically use the patient's upper arm.
In general, three electrodes are used: a reference electrode, a control electrode, and a working electrode.
Sheathing the lower third of each nanowire with a control electrode yielded transistors that waste less power than conventional designs do, says Lund team leader Lars Samuelson.
