### Quantum Computation with Persistent-current Aharonov-Bohm Qubits and Qugates

We propose that Aharonov-Bohm effect can be used for quantum computation. The effect consists of existence of persistent currents in mesoscopic/nanoscopic loops of normal metal or semiconductor in a magnetic field perpendicular to loop. Three-site [...]

Boundary roughness scattering in disordered tunnel-coupled double quantum wires in the presence of a magnetic field is considered. The low-temperature conductance as a function of applied magnetic field is calculated for different structure and disorder [...]

The double barrier SINIS junctions (here S, I, and N denote a superconductor, an insulator, and a normal metal, respectively) with a nanoscopic N spacer are potentially capable of performing quantum logic operations (so-called qubits) [...]

### Quantum-like Computation and “Thinking” Based on Classical Oscillations

Classical systems containing decision-making elements can possess quantum-like properties, most importantly interference of probabilities of different decisions. We demonstrate this theoretically using a set of linear numbered oscillators combined with decision-making and other devices. This [...]

In our report we study how the oscillations and reentrant behaviour of critical parameters depends on the elastic scattering of electrons on atomic impurities in S/F multilayers. The expressions for the electric supercurrent and for [...]

### A Computational Investigation of Electron Energy States for Vertically Coupled Semiconductor Quantum Dots

We study the induced property of ground and excited state energies of electrons confined in 3D nanostructures that the In_xGa_1-xAs QDs are embedded into GaAs matrix and have a vertically coupled topology. The disk-(DI) and [...]

Regardless of whichever precise nano-device technology ends up being most viable for general-purpose computing, the design of densely-packed computer systems comprised of nanometer-scale bit-devices offers a number of interesting new challenges for the field of [...]

### Strain Effect on the Final State Density-of-State for Hole Scattering in Silicon

Recently, strained-Si on Si1-xGe_x subtrate attracts considerable attention so as to enhance the carrier mobility in MOSFETs. The hole transport mechanism, however, has no been completely understood yet. The most important problem this mechanism is [...]

In an integrated silicon nanotechnology environment, it may be desirable to replace metallic inter-connects like Al, with Silicon metallic wires. This motivated us to investigate the electronic and transport properties of quasi one-dimensional (1D) Silicon [...]

A 1-dimensional analytic quantum mechanical effects correction formula for the MOSFET inversion charge and I-V characteristics are derived from the density gradient (DG) model using matched asymptotic expansion techniques. The primary theoretical framework for this [...]

We investigate the role of quantum-mechanical size-quantization effects in narrow-width SOI devices. In these structures, carriers experience a two dimensional confinement in a square quantum well at the semiconductor-oxide interface. This results not only in [...]
