Electron Transport on the Molecular Scale (transmol)

Cover
Start: 23 Feb 2001 | End: 24 Feb 2001
Location: Dresden, Germany
Organized by: G. Cuniberti, G. Fagas, K. Richter

Molecular electronics dates back almost three decades and is currently an active field of interplay between fundamental and applied research. This development is driven by both the interaction of chemical with solid state physics and possible technological applications. Recent experimental breakthroughs of conductance measurements of single (bio)molecules have given new momentum to the idea of using molecular-scale active components in electronic devices. During this symposium experts in the field will give an overview of the present state, current research activity, and future directions in theoretical and experimental aspects of molecular electronics. The aim is to generate informal discussions easing further exchange of ideas and creation of coordinated efforts.
The symposium will include, among others, the following topics:

  • coherent and sequential transport, tunneling and electron transfer, contact effects
  • description of electron transport via semi-empirical, self-consistent, and first-principle approaches
  • realization of molecular scale devices, properties, and functional molecules
  • break junction, STM, self-assembly, and other common experimental techniques
