Abstract

This paper reports on LB films in microstructured gold sandwiches. The active area of these sandwiches are so small that there is a fair chance of finding junctions without pinholes, or of seeing the effects of individual conductive paths. Selected current-voltage characteristics will be shown and discussed in terms of Coulomb staircases, resonant tunneling and molecular rectification.
