A Coulomb Blockade in a Nanostructure Based on Single Intramolecular Charge Center
A novel technique for the production of metal electrodes of a nanotransistor with a nanogap less than 4 nm between them is developed on the basis of controlling the electromigration of previously suspended nanowires of the system. A method that allows the embedding of a molecule of Rh(III) terpyridine with aurophilic ligands between electrodes is elaborated, as well. The characteristics of electron transport through a system that consists of the specified molecule with a single-atom charge center indicate the correlated (single-electron) tunneling of electrons.
