We report excited-state spectroscopy on a quantum dot side coupled to a quantum wire with accurate energy estimation. Our method utilizes periodic voltage pulses on the dot, and the energy calibration is performed with reference to the bias voltage across the wire. We demonstrate the observation on the orbital excited state and the Zeeman splitting in a single dot.

    We study anomalies in the Coulomb blockade spectrum of a quantum dot formed in a silicon nanowire. These anomalies are attributed to electrostatic interaction with charge traps in the device. A simple model reproduces these anomalies accurately and we show how the capacitance matrices of the...

    Lateral and vertical ordered one-dimensional quantum structures, i.e. InGaAs/GaAs(001) quantum dot chains and quantum wires, have been obtained using molecular beam epitaxy. It was found that the InGaAs wires or dot chains sit on two-dimensional wetting layers and run along the [-110] direction,...

    The spin of a confined electron, when oriented originally in some direction, will lose memory of that orientation after some time. Physical mechanisms leading to this relaxation of spin memory typically involve either coupling of the electron spin to its orbital motion or to nuclear spins....

    We examine the feasibility of performing single-spin readout in a small quantum dot (SQD), using a quantum point contact (QPC) that is coupled to it by a larger dot with a quasicontinuous spectrum. When the Fermi energy in the QPC is approximately equal to one of the discrete levels of the SQD,...
