Summary, in English

Three-Terminal ballistic junctions (TBJs) and planar quantum-wire transistors (QWTs) are emerging nanoelectronic devices with various novel electrical properties. In this work, we realize novel nanoelectronic analogue and digital circuits with TBJs and planar QWTs made on In0.75Ga0.25As/InP two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) material. First we show that a single TBJ can work as a frequency mixer or a phase detector. Second, we fabricate an integrated nanostructure containing two planar QWTs, which can be used as an RS flip-flop element. Third, we make a nanoelectronic circuit by the integration of two TBJs and two planar QWTs. This circuit shows the RS flip-flop functionalities with much larger noise margins in both high and low level inputs. All measurements in this work are done at room temperature.
