Quantum cell

electronics, computing
(Or “quantum dot cell”) A structure comprising four quantum dots arranged in a square, with two diagonally opposed dots containing electron charges. One diagonal containing charges is arbitrarily defined as representing a value of ‘1’, the other as ‘0’. In a five-dot cell, the fifth, central dot contains no charge.

  • Quantum cell wire

    electronics, computing (Or “quantum wire”, “binary wire”) Quantum cells arranged in a line to carry signals. Adjacent cells with the same orientation are at a low energy state and a change of orientation at one end of a quantum wire propagates along the wire, transmitting a signal. However, unlike conventional wire, since only the orientation […]
