Abstract

Single-electron tunneling through Au substrate-alkanethiol-Pd cluster-tip junctions is investigated with scanning tunneling spectroscopy. The measured I(V) curves reveal several characteristic features of the Coulomb blockade, namely, the presence of a Coulomb gap and a Coulomb staircase. By using the orthodox theory of single-electron tunneling, the capacitances and resistances of the double junction system as well as the fractional charge are extracted from the experimental data
