In science:

This is more than just a theoretical issue since this deviation from the law of large numbers is most pronounced [7, 9] for submicronic junction sizes relevant for spin electronics applications. A similar issue is topical for the future development of metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs).
Broad distribution effects in sums of lognormal random variables
To obtain transistor effect, current through the molecular junction has to be controlled by the third electrode acting either as an electrostatically coupled gate in traditional FET designs or as being attached to the molecule in quantum-interference-controlled transistor (QICT) concepts .
Quantum-interference-controlled three-terminal molecular transistors based on a single ring-shaped-molecule connected to graphene nanoribbon electrodes
Thus, this type of a device could act as either a molecular-scale FET or as a bipolar junction transistor capable of amplifying current in the third lead.

The system is an rf-SQUID with the Josephson junction replaced by a Bloch transistor - two junctions separated by a small superconducting island on which the charge can be induced by an external gate voltage.
Aharonov-Casher-Effect Suppression of Macroscopic Tunneling of Magnetic Flux
The system we consider is a SQUID with the Josephson junction replaced by a Bloch transistor (see, e.g., ) – two small, closely-spaced Josephson junctions, in which the charge on the island between the junctions can be varied by an external gate voltage Vg .
