Enhanced trend toward scaled-down Si metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) causes remarkable influence of individual dopants on device characteristics. This is regarded as a serious issue in further development of MOSFETs. On the contrary, however, the author and his colleagues have recently proposed a new concept of single dopant electronics, which aims at using potentials of single dopant atoms in Si. This kind of devices may lead us to extremely small devices with a channel size of ~1 nm as an extreme and a variety of functions like photon detection and single-electron transfer. In this paper, recent work on individual dopants by the author’s group, as well as by other groups will be presented.
