Surface-supported Molecular ARchiTectures: THEory Meets Experiment

Project description

Studying the on-surface synthesis of surface-supported molecular architectures

The electronics industry would not exist if it were not for nanoelectronics. As for the future of nanoelectronics, it will move from bulk 3D materials to lower dimensionalities of 1D and 2D materials. As such, there is a need to create well-controlled molecular networks. This is not easy because growth-driving forces remain poorly understood. In this context, the EU-funded SMART THEME project will develop a synergistic theoretical and experimental line of research on the on-surface synthesis of surface-supported molecular architectures using novel methods in density functional theory. The project’s main goal is to build an irreplaceable theoretical tool to rationalise experiments and drive them toward optimal synthesis routes.
