Multiple-tunnel junction devices with a source–drain electrode separation ranging from 50 to 200 nm and non-linear source–drain current–voltage characteristics, are constructed by a combination of optical lithography, anisotropic wet and dry etching and low-energy Si ion implantation. Electrical characteristics are found to depend strongly on the Si implantation dose and source–drain separation.
