Single-electron parametron


A system of three (or more) single-electron islands connected by tunnel junctions but isolated galvanically from environment. External electric fields applied to the parametron may cause either a "soft" (reversible) switching of the electron configuration of the system and, hence, of its electric dipole moment or a "freeze" of the moment in one of two possible metastable states.
