Recently, it was shown in Ref. 1 that single-electron tunneling (SET) oscillations were possible by rotating a conducting rod with a small tunnel juntion immerse in a uniform magnetic field perpendicular to the plane of motion. The purpose of this letter is to show that SET oscillations can be enhanced by applying a rotating electric field in resonance with the rotational motion of the conducting rod.
