We investigate single-particle excitations and strong-coupling effects in a twodimensional Fermi gas. Including pairing fluctuations within a Gaussian fluctuation theory, we calculate the density of states ρ(ω) near the Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless (BKT) transition temperature TBKT. Near TBKT, we show that superfluid fluctuations induce a pseudogap in ρ(ω). The pseudogap structure is very similar to the BCS superfluid density of states, although the superfluid order parameter is absent in the present two-dimensional case. Since a twodimensional 40K Fermi gas has recently been realized, our results would contribute to the understanding of single-particle properties near the BKT instability.
