We fabricated single electron transistor using DNA-assisted assembly of Au nanoparticles. Most devices exhibited clear Coulomb blockade and oscillations. In contrast to conventional single electron transistors, however, the period of Coulomb oscillations was observed to depend on the temperature. This temperature dependence is probably ascribed to the temperature dependence of gate capacitance.
