CMOS chips are everywhere in our modern age as technology plays an ever increasing part in our lives. This week’s image comes from a recent JPCM review on single donor electronics and quantum functionalities within advanced CMOS technologies. The review focuses on experimental methods of intergrating quantum dots in CMOS devices.
Although single-dopant electronics is still in its infancy this review highlights the potential benefits of incorporating carriers and dopants into quantum-based CMOS devices, which could then be intergrated into more complex structures such as standard CMOS devices, transistors and coupled qubits.
The review by Xavier Jehl et al is free to read until the end of the year.
