ABSTRACT
We provide an experimental proof of principle for a ternary multiplier realized in terms of the charge state of a single dopant atom embedded in a fin field effect transistor (Fin-FET). Robust reading of the logic output is made possible by using two channels to measure the current flowing through the device and the transconductance. A read out procedure that allows for voltage gain is proposed. Long numbers can be multiplied by addressing a sequence of Fin-FET transistors in a row.
