Abstract

A convenient experimental system is describe, with which electron transport through structurally well-defined, 2-5 nm-thick, organic films can be examined. Two types of junction J have been studied in which self-assembled monolayers (SAMs, for example, SAM(1) formed on Ag from aliphatic and aromatic thiols, and SAM(2), formed on Hg from hexadecanethiol) are in contact through either van der Waals interactions (see picture) or through covalent, hydrogen, or ionic bonds.
