SET: Coulomb blockade devices
This is a brief review of the basic physics of Coulomb blockade phenomena, core electron devices based on these effects, their scaling and fabrication challenges, and prospects of application in analog and digital electronics. This contribution is a revised and updated version of an article to appear in Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (Likharev 03a).
