Latest Molecular conductance Stories
Properties inherent in single molecules may also allow designers to produce devices whose behavior falls outside the performance observed in conventional electronics.
As reported this week in Nature Communications, the researchers used the atomically-sharp tip of a scanning tunneling microscope to move 1-nanometer sized molecules on top of a silver substrate.
In research appearing in todayâ€™s issue of the journal Nature Nanotechnology, Nongjian â€œNJâ€ Tao, a researcher at the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University, has demonstrated a clever way of controlling electrical conductance of a single molecule, by exploiting the moleculeâ€™s mechanical properties.
