This paper present new complementary logic circuits that exploit an intrinsic bistability in nanoscale coupled open quantum systems such as wells and wires. When operated with a multiple-phase split-level clocking scheme, the device can latch a binary digit while meeting gain, tolerance, and I/O decoupling requirements at the same time, which was difficult with conventional back-to-back negative differential resistance devices. This same structure in a dual-rail configuration can function as a complete set of classical logic circuits by changing only the connections of the input signals. When these circuits are combined to form a sequential circuit, low power operation is expected, thanks to better voltage scaling, a zero-standby-power equalized state, and efficient charge recycling.
