In this SBIR Phase I project, the principles of a novel (patented) plasmon-plasmon digital logic will be addressed with the goal of proving the concept. The concept has the potential for exhibiting digital logic functions with femto-second switching times and femto-Joule power dissipation, and is a strong t"beyond CMOS" candidate. In particular, the concept has the potential to implement the same function in one-quarter the area as CMOS, which suggests a greater equivalent device density than achievable with CMOS, leapfrogging Moore’s law. The concept exploits coherent quantum transport yet it operates at room temperature, and,its fabrication is totally compatible with available lithographic capabilities, hence, taking full advantage of established semiconductor manufacturing know how and infrastructure.
