Molecular electronics systems for nanowire technologies.


Collaborating institute:

Dr. T. Lu. Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, School of Chemical and Biological Engineering, University of Science and Technology Beijing, Beijing 100083, People's Republic of China.

Project duration: 2012 - 2013

Project description:

Rare and expensive elements such as gold, platina and palladium are often applied in p- and n-type systems, however the cost of manufacturing is directly dependent on the international market and demands on their bulk prices. In this context, carbon is an abundant source of material and can be applied in nanowires using several methods. In this project, a novel rationale based on molecular electronic sequence is applied to synthesize green-chemistry nanowires based on alternant chemistry. The use of sequences in molecular electronics is a novel approach for signalling and modulating condutivity and is here applied in to design the conductive properties of nanocomponents in microelectronic and nanoelectronic circuits.

Keywords: Molecular electronics, carbon based nanowires, nanosciences, quantum chemistry, atoms in molecules theory, computational systems, nanoelectronics, microelectronic components.
