Title:
Synchronizing a single-electron shuttle to an external drive 
Abstract:
The nanomechanical single-electron shuttle is a resonant system in which asuspended metallic island oscillates between and impacts at two electrodes. Thissetup holds promise for one-by-one electron transport and the establishment ofan absolute current standard. While the charge transported per oscillation by thenanoscale island will be quantized in the Coulomb blockade regime, the fre-quency of such a shuttle depends sensitively on many parameters, leading todrift and noise. Instead of consideri...    »
