Single-electron transistor: Effects of the environment and detecting electron motion in real time
This thesis will be divided into two parts. In the first part, theory and results of a novel system in which a superconducting single-electron transistor (S-SET) coupled to a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) serving as a tunable electromagnetic environment for the S-SET will be discussed, including effects of dissipation, resonant tunneling with ...
Electrical transport in a single-electron transistor coupled to a tunable environment
A novel model system is developed to study the effects of the environment on transport properties of a superconducting single-electron transistor (S-SET). The impedance of a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) 50 nm below the sample surface serving as the environment can be tuned in situ. A quantum dot is readily formed in the 2DEG. Josephson tunneling ...
