Abstract

This paper reports on some of the recent advances in the development and testing of molecular-scale electronic devices, devices that may ultimately be the basis of a molecular-based computer. These advances include: the synthesis of molecules which will perform specific electronic functions, self-assembled monolayer formation of rigid-rod conjugated oligomers, novel methodologies for the design and testing of molecular electronic devices, and the observance of negative differential resistance (NDR) through a molecule.
