MCW07 Modeling Molecule-Assisted Transport in Nanotransistors
06 Nov 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Kamil Walczak
Molecular electronics faces many problems in practical device implementation, due to difficulties with fabrication and gate-ability. In these devices, molecules act as the main conducting channel. One could imagine alternate device structures where molecules act as quantum dots rather than quantum wires, with assembled molecular adsorbates acting as scattering centers in commercial silicon-based FETs.
