    A theory of electrons in modulated nanowires is presented. We show that these structures are radically different from plain nanowires and quantum-well structures in their electronic, optical, and transport properties. We find that thermionic emission experiments only measure an effective barrier...

    We present a lithographically made Al single-electron transistor that shows gate modulation at room temperature. The temperature dependence of the modulation agrees with the orthodox theory, however, energy-level quantization in a tiny metallic island affects the device characteristics below 30...
