We present experimental results of the current-voltage characteristics of a lithographically made single-electron transistor with 10 nm island. We find a stepwise current increase above the threshold voltage, which is attributed to the discrete energy levels in the island. The distribution of level spacing has a tendency that supports the level repulsion effect. ?? 2003 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
