Abstract

We review the results obtained from spectroscopy of low-dimensional systems using capacitance measurements. This technique has provided prima facie evidence for spatial quantization in quantum wires and quantum dots. The energy level spacings scale appropriately with the size of the confining structure reflecting simple particle-in-a-box quantization. In addition we have obtained unprecedented agreement between theoretical calculations and our experimental results.
