Conformational and Spin Effects in Single-Molecule Electronic Transport

More Info


This dissertation presents the experimental work on singlemolecule charge transport, particularly on the aspects of spin and orbital conformational effects in singlemolecule junctions. In this dissertation, we employ and develop various singlemolecule techniques, the mechanically controlled break junction (MCBJ), thermoelectric electromigrated break junction (ThEMBJ) and reversible spin Hall junction (RSHJ), to characterize the spin and conformational effects beyond simple charge transport.
