Molecular Electronics: From Single-Molecule to Large-Area Devices


This mini review focuses on conductance measurements through molecular junctions containing few tens of molecules, which are fabricated along two approaches: (i) conducting atomic force microscope contacting a self-assembled monolayers on metal surface, and (ii) tiny molecular junctions made of metal nanodot (diameter < 10 nm), covered by fewer than 100 molecules and contacted by a conducting atomic force microscope. In particular, this latter approach has allowed to obtain new results or to revisit previous ones, which are reviewed here: (i) how the electron transport properties of molecular junctions are modified by mechanical constraint, (ii) the role of intermolecular interactions on the shape of conductance histograms of molecular junctions, and (iii) the demonstration that a molecular diode can operate in the microwave regime up to 18 GHz.
