Adaptive design may be used to synthesize a conduction band potential profile to obtain desired nonequilibrium electron transmission-voltage characteristics. Our methodology is illustrated by designing a two-terminal linear element in which electron motion is limited by quantum mechanical transmission through a potential profile.
