I would like to make a circle the same size as \otimes (but without the \times symbol in it). It seems that \circ is too small, and \bigcirc is too large.

From the package wasysym.

In text mode: \Circle$\otimes$
In math mode: $\Circle\otimes$

Only in math mode: \ocircle.

You also can use \ovoid from matha, one of the fonts from mathabx. Here is a code to use only this symbol:




$ \oplus\enspace \ovoid \enspace \otimes $\
