Keywords: quantum, electronic device, molecule

This paper examines multi-terminal quantum-effect devices. These devices are envisioned to be utilized in emerging molecular gates (Mgates) and neuronal hypercells for expected molecular integrated circuits. In addition to molecular-centered processing and memories, MEdevices are of importance in molecular sensing and interfacing applications. We concentrate on the device-level analysis researching transitions and interactions which are due to quantum phenomena and effects exhibited by microscopic (molecular) systems. Our ultimate objective is to analyze the controlled electron transport, study the I-V characteristics, evaluate performance and assess device capabilities.
