Tunneling rates in electron transport through double-barrier molecular junctions in a scanning tunneling microscope


Tunneling rates in electron transport through double-barrier molecular junctions in a scanning tunneling microscope



Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America 102(25): 8832-8837

The scanning tunneling microscope enables atomic-scale measurements of electron transport through individual molecules. Copper phthalocyanine and magnesium porphine molecules adsorbed on a thin oxide film grown on the NiAl(110) surface were probed. The single-molecule junctions contained two tunneling barriers, vacuum gap, and oxide film. Differential conductance spectroscopy shows that electron transport occurs via vibronic states of the molecules.
