Abstract

Nonsymmetric electric properties such as rectification, negative differential resistance, threshold gate, hysteresis effect, and integrated threshold gate are essential for realizing molecular brain computers, which are believed to withstand noise and fluctuations. So far, there is no fixed design principle for single-molecule electronic devices, mainly because the current–voltage (IV) characteristics of such devices differ owing to differing conduction mechanisms. In the tunneling regime of the molecules, the IV characteristics are essentially dependent on the density of states of the system, whereas in the hopping mechanisms, the molecules can be charged to change their electronic characteristics. To understand this principle, we have synthesized a series of molecules to study the electric properties of single molecules.
