PhD Thesis Defense by Elena Marchante on 9th June at 11:30 am

The PhD Researcher Elena Marchante, from the NANOMOL group will defend his PhD thesis:

ElenaMarchante BNTitle: "Self-assembled monolayers of electroactive molecules for the preparation of memory devices"
Date:  Friday 9th June
Time: 11:30 am
Place: Sala d'Actes Carles Miravitlles - ICMAB
Abstract: This Thesis is focused on the development of new molecular electronic devices based on electroactive self-assembled monolayers (SAMs), and on the electrochemical study of the electron transfer (ET) phenomena associated to them. In the first part, it is described the use of different redox molecules immobilized on gold as molecular switches. In the second part, it is reported the ET mechanism study, by electrochemical means, in a family of polychlorothriphenylmethyl radical (PTM) derivative compounds attached to gold. It has been studied the ET process in different organic electrolytic media and as a function of the surface coverage of the modified gold. Finally, it has been also fabricated a functioning OFET using an ion gel as gate dielectric, demonstrating that the ion gels are highly attractive to be applied in low cost and flexible organic transistors.

    The August 2017 edition of the Research*EU magazine featured an interesting overview of the ACMOL project, which is working to develop graphene-based spintronics for next-gen molecular electronic devices. This article held that ‘Spintronics, molecular electronics and graphene have a common trait: they are all considered as key enablers in the future of computing beyond the limitations of Moore’s and Kryder’s laws. The ACMOL project is contributing to their joint advancement with proof-of-concept devices.’
