Abstract

We have been developing a scale molecular electronic device using a 30 nm sized plant virus particle as the scaffold. This talk describes the bioengineering aspects of how the virus particle is converted to a molecular electronic circuit and its electrical characterization. The talk describes some fundamental aspect of our experimental work on the role of metal-molecule contacts and the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that contribute to non-linear molecular electronic behavior.

Bio

Dr. R. Shashidhar received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Mysore, India. In 1988, he worked as a Scientist/Professor at Raman Research Institute in Bangalore, India. From 1984 to 1987, he was a Visiting Professor at M.I.T. From 1988-1993, he was a Research Professor at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. From 1993 to June, 2003, he was with the Center for Bio/Molecular Science and Engineering Materials and Surfaces and a Senior Scientist for Liquid Crystal Materials and Devices. Since that time, he has been the Corporate Research Director at GEO-CENTERS, Inc. His research interests include Liquid Crystal Materials & Display Devices, Biological cell interaction with liquid crystals, lipids, Self-assembly, and Microstructures, DNA and biomaterials, Molecular Electronics and Nanoelectronics, molecular memory devices, conducting polymers, organic transistors, OLED materials and photovoltaic materials.
