Seminario INMA: “Unraveling the Interplay between Quantum Transport and Geometrical Conformations in Molecular Junctions”.- Viernes 21 de junio

El viernes 21 de junio de 2024 tendrá lugar un nuevo seminario INMA de la mano de Carlos Sabater del Departamento de Física Aplicada and Instituto Universitario de Materiales de Alicante (IUMA), que ofrecerá la charla titulada: Unraveling the Interplay between Quantum Transport and Geometrical Conformations in Molecular Junctions.

Resumen de la charla (en inglés):

In molecular electronics transport experiments performed using the break-junction (BJ) approach, identifying the orientation of the molecule between the nanoelectrodes is a challenging task. To uncover the relationship between the orientation of the molecule and its conductance, we have combined experimental results obtained via the BJ technique with atomistic simulations and ab initio calculations. The results we will present cover both helicene-type [1] molecules and solvents such as monocyclic hydrocarbons [2,3].

Our experimental results reveal how electronic transport occurs when a molecule is captured and stretched between two electrodes. Additionally, results from classical molecular dynamics (CMD) simulations have shown the most common orientations of organic molecules under these conditions. Furthermore, for all simulated cases, we have calculated electronic transport using Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations.

Thanks to the good agreement between experimental and theoretical results, we can conclude that it is possible to uncover the relationship between molecular orientation and electronic transport for both simple solvents like benzene, toluene, and cyclohexane, as well as for helicoidal molecules such as dithia[n]helicenes.

La conferencia tendrá lugar elviernes 21 de junio a las 12:30 horas en el Aula del Edificio I+D+i del Campus Río de la Universidad de Zaragoza.
