Observation of Quantum Fluctuations of Charge on a Quantum Dot

Abstract

We have incorporated an aluminum single electron transistor directly into the defining gate structure of a semiconductor quantum dot, permitting precise measurement of the dot charge. Voltage biasing a gate draws charge from a reservoir into the dot through a single point contact. The dot charge increases continuously for large point contact conductance and… (More)
