Clarifying the nature of interactions between metal electrodes and organic molecules still represent one of the challenging problems in molecular electronics that needs to be solved in order to optimize electron transport through a molecular device. For this purpose, electronic properties at metal-molecule interfaces were studied by combining experimental(More)
Rare-earth (RE) oxide surfaces are of significant importance for catalysis and were recently reported to possess intrinsic hydrophobicity. The surface chemistry of these oxides in the low temperature regime, however, remains to a large extent unexplored. The reactions occurring at RE surfaces at room temperature (RT) in real air environment, in particular,(More)
Silicon clusters embedded in a silicon dioxide matrix were prepared by ultrasound-assisted implantation resulting in a modified concentration of suboxide states as revealed by high-resolution photoelectron spectroscopy. It is suggested that ultrasound treatment results in formation of different interface structure between silicon cluster and silicon dioxide(More)
Since the first proposal by Aviram and Ratner to use organic molecules as new building blocks for information technology, tremendous efforts have been spent to implement basic electronic units such as rectifiers or transistors. To fabricate appropriate metal–molecule–metal hybrid structures, two strategies have been followed in recent years, resulting in(More)
