Electrical measurement of self-assembled structures

Self-assembled structures that have been placed on to electrode systems have been characterised electrically as a function of temperature. Evidence of Coulomb blockade and activated conduction has been identified. A variety of different samples made using different techniques have been evaluated, including nanowires made from Au nanoparticles that have been assembled using RNA. The impact of this work is likely to be in nanofabrication of small electrical devices since there is potential to provide a low cost manufacturing process.
