SPM studies of quinone-based 1D molecular wires

Aleš Cahlík

One-dimensional (1D) polymers are of particular interest due to their potential applications in the field of molecular electronics. The synthesis of nanomaterials at the solvent-free solid- vacuum interface has been emerging as a promising approach to obtain tailored low dimensional materials with atomic precision. The work focuses on formation and electronic properties of quinone based 1D molecular wires. In the first work, the deposited precursor assembles into long, hydrogen-bonded wires with nontrivial electronic properties. The second work demonstrates the possibility to use the same quinone precursor for the formation of organometallic wires by UHV co-deposition with various transition metal atoms.
