Controlling charge transfer to/from the Cu(111) surface through benzene functionalization

Organic molecules adsorbed on a noble metal surface can self-assemble as a result of attractive supramolecular interactions, or repel one another if the amount of charge transferred at the adsorbate-surface interface is large. In order...

BAND calculations explain break-through molecular charge transport experiment

Charge transport through single-molecule junctions is dominated by image charges. This is demonstrated and explained by a combined experimental and theoretical effort from Delft (Quantum Nanoscience and Chemical Engineering departments) and the Leiden Institute of...
