Transistor pumps electrons one by one

Scientists have now pumped electrons with a silicon transistor more accurately than ever before. This device fabricated at the NSW node of ANFF can potentially be used to set a new definition for electric current, the ampere. The results were recently published in Nano Letters.

Accurate and fast electron pumping has been an important scientific and technological goal for decades. Now scientists have pumped 500 million electrons per second with 99.997% accuracy. The electron pump was a quantum-dot transistor fabricated using scalable silicon technology.
