Regular Arrays of Artificial Surface-Mounted Dipolar Molecular Rotors

Objective

We propose a feasibility demonstration of an unprecedented concept: preparation of regular two-dimensional arrays of artificial surface-mounted dipolar molecular rotors and control of their coherent motion by the application of an outside electric field. The proposal involves a highly interdisciplinary endeavor, which requires experience in synthesis (preparation of molecular rotors), surface chemistry (assembly of rotors into arrays on surfaces), surface spectroscopy and scanning microscopy (characterization of rotor arrays on surfaces), and theory (modeling of rotor dynamics). The principal investigator is presently actively working and publishing in all of these subdisciplines.
