During the past decade, single-electronics for general reviews, see Ref 5. 1-3 has turned into a major field of physical and applied electronics. Preliminary studies of possible applications of single-electron devices 1,4,5 indicated that they might yield a completely new generation of both digital and analog devices with unparalleled performance. most notably extremely dense digital circuits. However, many issues before the beginning of this work these expectations have not been confirmed by detailed, quantitative analyses. In 1991, a collaboration of three research groups at Stony Brook, headed by Professors Dmitri V. Averin, Konstantin K. Likharev and James E. Lukens, began an AFOSR-supported project in the field of single-electronics. During the few first years of this work, a solid technological, experimental and theoretical base for single-electronics was established at Stony Brook, and many interesting results have been obtained. Since January 1995, this research has been supported under the current grant.
