Electron transport through small Si quantum dot is investigated. The B-dependence of energy levels is dominated by the Zeeman shift, allowing us to measure the spin difference between two successive ground states directly. Combined with the ability to change the number of electrons N in the dot between 0 and 30, we are able to map the spin of the the dot as a function of N and B. Various spin-related phenomena, such as singlet-triplet transitions and spin blockade, are observed.
