By capactively coupling sensitive charge detectors (i.e. single-electron transistors - SETs) to nanostructures such as quantum dots and two-dimensional systems, it is possible to investigate charge transport properties in extremely low conduction regimes where direct transport measurements are increasingly difficult. Ion-implanted nano-MOSFETs coupled to aluminium SETs have been constructed in order to study charge transport between locally doped regions in Si at mK temperatures. This configuration allows for direct source-drain measurement as well as non-invasive charge detection. Of particular interest are the effects of material defects and gate control on charge transport, which is of relevance to Si-based quantum computing.
