    Did you try google? Don't listen to your teacher/professors if they say Wikipedia is a bad source. When it comes to this kind of stuff Wikipedia is the BEST source :)

    Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor.

    MOSFETs are one side of it, you take two different polarity MOSFET transistors, scale them down until they will operator at 2V, and make a simple inverter out of them using two transistors. From there you can make a wide variety of gates. Since the geometry is fairly small they are really efficient to use.

    The "CMOS Cookbook" by Don Lancaster is what I am learning from. They used to be available cheap on Amazon but I see the prices have shot way up. Guess I better keep better care of mine, I've used my "TTL Cookbook" until it's fallen to pieces. Bought both at a local flea market.

    I bought the Active Filter book by Don Lancaster, and it fell apart in just a few days. I think Don Lancaster needs a better printing company.

    If you need an exemple, here is a NAND gate.
