  • Utility of ferritin in molecular electronics, especially in single molecule electronics based devices, has recently been proposed, since the iron core of holoferritin is semiconducting in nature. However, the practical aspects, e.g., how its electronic properties can be varied/tuned, need to be better addressed. In this direction, we have performed direct tunneling experiments using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and scanning tunneling spectroscopy (STS) on several metal core reconstituted… CONTINUE READING
