Contact Resistance in Metal−Molecule−Metal Junctions Based on Aliphatic SAMs: Effects of Surface Linker and Metal Work Function

Using conducting probe atomic force microscopy, we have formed molecular tunnel junctions consisting of alkanethiols and alkane isonitrile self-assembled monolayers sandwiched between gold, platinum, silver, and palladium contacts

Scholarcy highlights

  • Using conducting probe atomic force microscopy, we have formed molecular tunnel junctions consisting of alkanethiols and alkane isonitrile self-assembled monolayers sandwiched between gold, platinum, silver, and palladium contacts
  • R0 is strongly dependent on the type of metal used for the contacts and decreases with increasing metal work function; that is, R0,Ag > R0,Au > R0,Pd > R0,Pt
