Paper Abstract

We present the findings of single-electron transport through the Ag-related center as a quantum dot weakly coupled by tunneling junctions with the silicon quantum wire which is formed at the Si (100) surface by the crystallographically- oriented chain of the adsorbed silver atoms. The quantum dot of this art is shown to be variable thereby demonstrating the quantum staircase in forward bias and to change a position as a function of charge states revealed by the Coulomb single-electron charging in reverse bias. The effects observed seem to be due to a field-dependent asymmetry of the barriers isolating the Ar-related center from the silicon quantum wire.
