Quantum dots combined with transistors

Purdue University researchers have created quantum dots in a gallium arsenide transistor. The quantum dots are puddles of about 40-60 electrons. Together the dots can form part of transistors in which the electrons’ spin, a quantum mechanical property, could be harnessed to make logic gates for next-generation computer chips.
