Highlights with ‘molecular electronics’

A mechanically and electronically robust graphene-based molecular junction

A molecular device, which is both mechanically and electronically stable under operating conditions at room temperature has recently been developed. In the report in Nature Nanotechnology, researchers from Switzerland, the Netherlands, the UK, and Israel...

Charge transport through single molecule conductors

Tetraphenylmethane tripod is a promising platform to support functional moieties considered for the fabrication of working elements in future molecular electronic devices. In this work, charge transport (conductance G) in molecular conductors supported by tetraphenylmethane...

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...
