Control of Exchange Interaction in a Double Dot System
13 Jul 2004  Online Presentations  Contributor(s): Mike Stopa
As Rolf Landauer observed in 1960, information is physical. As a consequence, the transport and processing of information must obey the laws of physics. It therefore makes sense to base the laws...
