Conductance of Single- and Double-Gated Quantum Stub Transistor
Keywords:Nanodevice, tight-binding Hamiltonian, Green function, quantum stub transistor, quantum transport
Quantum stub transistors are low power, high frequency, and nanometer-size devices, and as such they are candidates for next generation electronic devices. In particular, such structures may be used in spintronics-based quantum computation, because of its ability to induce spin-polarized transport. In this paper, we present the simulation of the conductance of the quantum stub transistor (single and double-gated), modeled with a nearest-neighbor tight-binding Hamiltonian. The results suggest how the electrical behavior of the quantum stub transistor may be improved.
