<*electronics, computing*> (Or "quantum dot cell") A structure
comprising four quantum dots arranged in a square, with two
diagonally opposed dots containing electron charges. One
diagonal containing charges is arbitrarily defined as
representing a value of '1', the other as '0'. In a five-dot
cell, the fifth, central dot contains no charge.
