Quasi- static transport measurements are employed to characterize a few-electron quantum dot electrostatically defined in a GaAs/ AlGaAs heterostructure. The gate geometry allows observations on one and the same electron droplet within a wide range of coupling strengths to the leads. The weak coupling regime is described by discrete quantum states. At strong interaction with the leads, Kondo phenomena are observed as a function of a magnetic field. By varying the gate voltages the electron droplet can, in addition, be distorted into a double quantum dot with a strong interdot tunnel coupling while keeping track of the number of trapped electrons.
