Charge-hopping without activation barriers across molecular junctions
Assoc Prof Christian NIJHUIS and his research group from the Department of Chemistry, NUS reported in Nature Nanotechnology a new way to reduce power consumption of molecular electronic devices. For charges to flow across a molecule, usually an energy barrier needs to be overcome which requires heat. The so-called Marcus theory describes the science behind it and explains how the applied temperature increases or decreases current flow across molecules. Here we show for the first time that it is possible to inject charge into a molecule without ...
