Single electronic transistor is an application of the nanotechnology. The aim of this paper is to discuss on this nano electronic device, also known as SET. The Single electron transistor is considered as one of the main candidate for the basic element of future ULSI chips. The fundamental physical principle of single electron transistor are the tunnelling effect and the Coulomb blockade. ASET is a very small and sensitive device and is similar to Field Effect Transistor (F.E.T).Due to its small size its future is very bright. It will be very useful in making Quantum computer. It can be used as sensors, detector. Due to its small size we could make strong and more powerful chip. Recent research in SET gives new thoughts which are going to change the random access memory and digital data storage technologies. SET is capable of controlling the transport of only one electron at a time.
