We have fabricated a 200 nm quantum dot in a silicon Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor (MOSFET) structure. Confining gates situated on top of a 10 nm oxide deplete the electron gas created by an inversion gate 70 nm away from the Si-SiO2 interface. Measurements indicate that the size of the dot can be tuned by the gates. Furthermore, we observe conductance fluctuations in the gate characteristic which are indicative of single-electron behavior.
