We measure a large valley-orbit splitting for shallow isolated phosphorus donors in a silicon gated nanowire. This splitting is close to the bulk value and well above previous reports in silicon nanostructures. It was determined using a double dopant transport spectroscopy which eliminates artifacts induced by the environment. Quantitative simulations(More)
Codeposition of C60 and the three-dimensional molecular hydrocarbon 1,3,5,7-tetraphenyladamantane (TPA) on Au(111) leads to the spontaneous formation of molecular nanostructures in which each fullerene is locked into a specific orientation by three surrounding TPA. Scanning tunneling spectroscopy shows that the electronic coupling of C60 with the surface is(More)
Acrylonitrile may react with the Si(100) surface in a number of ways. Fifteen different configurations have been identified. This study which complements an earlier study devoted to cycloadditions and bonds involving a single atom deals essentially with configurations involving cumulative double bonds. Factors affecting the relative stability of various(More)
We describe the first implementation of a coupled atom transistor where two shallow donors (P or As) are implanted in a nanoscale silicon nanowire and their electronic levels are controlled with three gate voltages. Transport spectroscopy through these donors placed in series is performed both at zero and microwave frequencies. The coherence of the charge(More)
Using a density functional approach, we have explored the cycloaddition of acrylonitrile on the Si(100) surface. The buckling of the surface dimers characteristic for the (2x1) reconstructed surface is shown to favor structures with a dipolar moment such as the resonant form of acrylonitrile with cumulative double bonds. The bond of acrylonitrile via a(More)
