Electromechanical and conductance switching properties of single oligothiophene molecules.

Abstract

We have studied the electron transport and electromechanical properties of single oligothiophenes with three and four thiophene repeating units covalently linked to two Au electrodes. The four-repeating unit molecule is found to be more conductive than the three-repeating unit molecule. This unusual length dependence is due to the different electronic… (More)
