We report the electronic transport on n-type silicon single electron transistors (SETs) fabricated in complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology. The n-type metal oxide silicon SETs (n-MOSSETs) are built within a pre-industrial fully depleted silicon on insulator (FDSOI) technology with a silicon thickness down to 10 nm on 200 mm wafers. The nominal channel size of 20× 20 nm 2 is obtained by employing electron beam lithography for active and gate level patterning. The Coulomb blockade stability diagram is precisely resolved at 4.2 K and it exhibits large addition energies of tens of meV. The confinement of the electrons in the quantum dot has been modeled by using a current spin density functional theory (CS-DFT) method. CMOS technology enables massive production of SETs for ultimate nanoelectronic and quantum variable based devices.
