Cluster Size Effects as a Bridge to Molecular Electronics

  • Joshua Jortner


Molecular electronics1–3 constitutes a multidisciplinary research field with dual goals:
  1. (I)

    Providing molecular materials for electronic and optoelectronic applications.

  2. (II)

    Utilization of single molecular systems, e.g., a molecule, supermolecule, molecular aggregate or cluster for the processing of optical, electrical, magnetic, chemical or biological signals.
