Abstract

We have investigated transport properties of single-electron transistors made from colloidal nanoparticles. The single-electron transistors were fabricated depositing chemically synthesized gold nanoparticles between pairs of electrodes. Current-voltage characteristics were measured at liquid He temperature. The observed Coulomb diamond indicates that electron transport occurs through a single gold nanoparticle. Anomalous increase of current was observed in a device. The origin of the current increase is discussed in connection with a suppression of molecular tunneling barriers.
