On the road to atomic-scale electronic circuits, dangling bond wires are promising candidates. Dangling bonds are formed by selectively removing hydrogen from a passivated silicon surface [1,2] and multiple dangling bonds in a row feature extended electronic states. Those quasi 1D surface structures can be used as atomic scale interconnects. In such circuits, molecules, which can controllably passivate or depassivate a dangling bond can provide logical inputs for constructing simple logic elements. In this talk, we present recent studies combining density-functional based approaches with Green function methods of a molecular switch for dangling bond wires on silicon.
