Molecular Electronics Pathway for Molecular Memory Devices

We have been developing a scale molecular electronic device using a 30 nm sized plant virus particle as the scaffold. This talk describes the bioengineering aspects of how the virus particle is converted to a molecular electronic circuit and its electrical characterization. The talk describes some fundamental aspect of our experimental work on the role of metal-molecule contacts and the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that contribute to non-linear molecular electronic behavior.
