Nanofabrication of electron devices based on the stability of hydrogen- and oxygen-terminated diamond surfaces is performed using an atomic force microscope modification technology. A nanotechnology involving the separation of CH and CO bonded surfaces has been applied to realize the single-hole transistors. The single-hole transistors operate at liquid-nitrogen temperature (77 K), where the Coulomb oscillation characteristics are clearly observed.
