    Abstract : Molecular electronics is an area of micro/nanoelectronics with a number of farreaching goals and challenges: denser implementation of electronic memory and logic, less expensive manufacturing, smaller or more sensitive measurement devices, selfassembly of devices and systems and, last but not least, exploring new science and applications.In recent years, molecular electronics has expanded into a broader field of molecular-scale electronics, partly because molecular components have to be defined in solid-state contexts via lithography and self-assembly, and effectively become hybrid devices with new and interesting properties.

  4. 4. A Quantum Chemical View of Molecular and Nano-Electronics

    Author : Jun Jiang; Yi Luo; Jim Greer; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : This dissertation presents a generalized quantum chemical approach for electron transport in molecular electronic devices based on Green's function scattering theory. It allows to describe both elastic and inelastic electron transport processes at first principles levels of theory, and to treat devices with metal electrodes either chemically or physically bonded to the molecules on equal footing.

  5. 5. Building Systems for Electronic Probing of Single Low Dimensional Nano-objects : Application to Molecular Electronics and Defect Induced Graphene

    Author : Syed Hassan Mujtaba Jafri; Klaus Leifer; Aidan Quinn; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Graphene; defect induced graphene; molecular electronics; nanoelectrodes; nanoparticles; conductivity; junction; nanomaterial; focused ion beam; surface functionalization; electrical characterization; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialanalys; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Analysis;

    Abstract : Nano-objects have unique properties due to their sizes, shapes and structure. When electronic properties of such nano-objects are used to build devices, the control of interfaces at atomic level is required. READ MORE
