Single-electron transistors and memory cells with Au colloidal islands linked by C60 derivatives were fabricated by hybridization of top-down electron-beam lithography. Coulomb-blockade-type current-voltage characteristics and hysteretic-type gate-modulated current were shown by low-temperature transport measurements. Results showed that the hysteresis was due to the presence of electrically isolated charge-storage islands.
