Charge pumping through a single donor atom

Abstract : Presented in this paper is a proof-of-concept for a new approach to single electron pumping based on a single atom transistor. By charge pumping electrons through an isolated dopant atom in silicon, precise currents of up to 160 pA at 1 GHz are generated, even if operating at 4.2 K, with no magnetic field applied, and only when one barrier is addressed by sinusoidal voltage cycles.
