Paper Abstract

In this paper we have investigated the possibility of determining single-electron spectrum of the nano-object, that is used as the central island of a single-electron transistor. The method for the charge spectra and singleparticle transport spectra determination on the basis of the experimental stability diagram was suggested. It was shown, that to calculate the total energy spectrum of a molecular nano-object for various charging and excitation states and a single-particle spectrum, one needs to measure the blockade diamonds of the stability diagram. To identify the electron energy relaxation type in the molecular nano-object it is necessary to measure the stability diagram of the molecular single-electron transistor up to the first non-blockade diamond. In addition, a method of calculation of tunneling rates via single-particle energy levels of the molecular object has been suggested. Calculation of energy spectrum for various charging and excitation states has been carried out, on the basis of experimental data.
