AbstractWe study a single-electron room temperature memory device. The device was fabricated by a pulse mode atomic force microscopy nano-oxidation process on an atomically flat α-A12O3 substrate. We model the operation using a Monte Carlo simulation. There is a general agreement between theory and experiment. The observed differences stem from noise and the uncertainty in determining the geometry of the fabricated circuit.
