Can single electron effects be directly observed in Si quantum dots array at room temperature?

Abstract

We report a direct observation of Coulomb blockade and quantum confinement effects in the room-temperature current-voltage (I-V) characteristics of Si quantum dots (Si-QDs) array (with a mean diameter of 6 nm), which is embedded in the SiO/sub 2//Si-QDs array/SiO/sub 2//n/sup +/-Si (100) structure and elaborated in a plasma enhanced chemical vapor… (More)
