Shaping the Atomic-Scale Geometries of Electrodes to Control Optical and Electrical Performance of Molecular Devices

Shaping the Atomic‐Scale Geometries of Electrodes to Control Optical and Electrical Performance of Molecular Devices

Both atomic-scale sharp and atomic-scale planar electrodes are fabricated and the gap size between electrodes can be controlled with subangstrom accuracy. With these two achievements, the electron transport as well as the Raman scattering in the molecular junctions can be modulated supplying a platform to study the interaction between electron transport and Raman scattering.

Molecular Self-Doping Controls Luminescence of Pure Organic Single Crystals

Molecular Self‐Doping Controls Luminescence of Pure Organic Single Crystals

A novel concept of molecular self-doping is introduced as designing perspective for organic optoelectronic materials. A highly luminescent dopant emerges as a minute-quantity byproduct during chemical synthesis of the host material. This results in a twofold luminescence enhancement of solution-grown single crystals, while charge transport is largely retained.

N-Type 2D Organic Single Crystals for High-Performance Organic Field-Effect Transistors and Near-Infrared Phototransistors

N‐Type 2D Organic Single Crystals for High‐Performance Organic Field‐Effect Transistors and Near‐Infrared Phototransistors

High-performance organic field-effect transistors and near-infrared phototransistors with n-type two-dimensional organic single crystals are successfully fabricated. A field-effect electron mobility (1.36 cm2 V−1 s−1) and high on/off ratio (108) are obtained. Impressively, the ultrasensitive near-infrared phototransistors exhibit an ultrahigh detectivity exceeding 6 × 1014 Jones, superior to the majority of the reported organic-based near-infrared phototransistors.

Monitoring the Dynamic Process of Formation of Plasmonic Molecular Junctions during Single Nanoparticle Collisions

Monitoring the Dynamic Process of Formation of Plasmonic Molecular Junctions during Single Nanoparticle Collisions

The evolution and dynamic changes of the interfacial chemical bonding during the formation of plasmonic molecular tunnel junctions are investigated by time-resolved electrochemical current measurement and surface-enhanced Raman scattering spectroscopy. These junctions are formed by the single gold nanoparticle collision events at a molecule-modified gold nanolectrode.
