Nonlinear transport spectroscopy on quantum dots

Chapter
Part of the Advances in Solid State Physics book series (ASSP, volume 34)

Abstract

Single electron tunneling through quantum dots is determined by the interplay between classical charging effects and the discrete level spectrum originating from the three-dimensional confinement. Spectroscopy of ground and excited states of the quantum dot can be performed in such tunneling experiments by studying the linear and nonlinear transport, which will be further discussed in this section.
