The two-input exclusive-OR (XOR) gate function was implemented by a multi-gate single-electron transistor. Two types of devices with different gate configurations were fabricated and tested. XOR operations were successfully performed through current switching at 40 K. The device has striking features for reducing the number of devices in logic circuits.
