Abstract
(EN)
The invention concerns a MOS transistor whereof the gate length is smaller by twice the Broglie wavelength of the current carriers in the material of the channel. The channel region section (3) is reduced in the vicinity of the drain region (8) by at least one dimension at a value (e2) less than half said wavelength.

(FR)
L'invention concerne un transistor MOS dont la longueur de grille est inférieure à deux fois la longueur d'onde de de Broglie des porteurs de charge dans le matériau du canal . La section de la région de canal (3) est réduite au voisinage de la région de drain (8) selon au moins une dimension à une valeur (e2) inférieure à la moitié de ladite longueur d'onde.
