Understanding the Physics and Chemistry of Single Molecule Junctions
The research in my group strives to construct measure and understand the physics and chemistry of single molecule electrical junctions. This research is crucial for the advancement of future nanoelectronic devices.
Current research in the group is divided into two areas:
Since typical energy scales of molecules are in the optical and infrared regime, where today’s laser technology provides a wealth of coherent light sources, future research in my group will focus on the various ways by which lasers could be used to affect and direct currents through single molecule junctions.
