Molecular electronics

Molecular electronics is a rapidly developing research field at the interface of physics, chemistry, and engineering, in which electron transport through molecules is investigated. The project involves design and ab initio simulations of molecular structures, metal and semiconductor surfaces and molecular adsorption applied to molecular electronics, biological- and nano-sensors and synthesis of novel materials. Our research is performed within the environment of the Uppsala University UniMolecular Electronics Center (U³MEC) which focuses on molecular electronics based on single or small assemblies of molecules.
