Abstract

We have had a temptation to call this chapter traditionally, something like “Single-Electronic Devices”, but eventually decided to change the title. The reason is that the present-day applied physics literature is full of descriptions of various electronic “devices” which have no real chance to be used in practice, because their possible performance is inferior to that of commercially available devices. (Most amusing is that in most cases this comparison is never being made, with silent mutual understanding of the grim facts by the writing, reading, and possibly even financing parties). In some situations, this sort of research work is justified (provided that its authors do not depart too far from what Rolf Landauer calls the “truth in advertising” [1]). In fact, operation of many new “devices” involves very complex physics which sometimes can be studied in this way alone.
