Spectroscopy of Ground and Excited States of the Confined Electron System in a Quantum Dot by Electrical Transport Measurements

Excited states of the confined electron system in a quantum dot offer additional transport channels for single-electron tunneling.

The method of transport spectroscopy allows investigating the charging energies required to add an electron to the electron system confined in the quantum dot. Increasing the number of confined electrons, the transition from few to many electrons can be studied, revealing correlation effects between the electrons which are more pronounced than in real atoms due to the stronger influence of electron-electron interaction. Especially the evolution of single-electron charging energies to ground and excited states of the confined electron system with applied magnetic field gives further insight.
