We have fabricated a GaAs/InGaAs/AlGaAs-based single-electron transistor (SET) formed by etched trenches and multiple gates. Clear Coulomb-blockade oscillations have been observed when the gate biases are scanned. By self-consistently solving three-dimensional Schrodinger and Poisson equations, we have studied the energy-band structure and the carrier distribution of our SET. General agreement between numerical simulation results and measurement data has been obtained, thus indicating the effectiveness of our SET-device design as well as the necessity of a complete three-dimensional quantum-mechanical simulation.
