The effect of oxidation temperature on the electrical characteristics of silicon (Si)-single electron transistor (SET) was analyzed. The SETs were fabricated with precise dimensions by electron-beam nanolithography. The SETs fabricated using a low oxidation temperature exhibited clear Coulomb blockade oscillations at room temperature. The results show that at low oxidation temperature, the small roughness inherent to the resist was transferred to the nanowire during etching.
