    • Characterizing the Metal–SAM Interface in Tunneling Junctions 

      Bowers, Carleen Morris; Liao, Kung-ching; Zaba, Tomasz; Rappoport, Dmitrij; Baghbanzadeh, Mostafa; Breiten, Benjamin; Krzykawska, Anna; Cyganik, Piotr; Whitesides, George McClelland (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2015)
      his paper investigates the influence of the interface between a gold or silver metal electrode and an n-alkyl SAM (supported on that electrode) on the rate of charge transport across junctions with structure Met(Au or ...
    • Charge Tunneling along Short Oligoglycine Chains 

      Baghbanzadeh, Mostafa; Bowers, Carleen Morris; Rappoport, Dmitrij; Zaba, Tomasz; Gonidec, Mathieu; Al-Sayah, Mohammad; Cyganik, Piotr; Aspuru-Guzik, Alan; Whitesides, George McClelland (Wiley-Blackwell, 2015)
      This work examines charge transport (CT) through self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of oligoglycines having an N-terminal cysteine group that anchors the molecule to a gold substrate, and demonstrate that CT is rapid (relative ...
    • Formation of Highly Ordered Self-Assembled Monolayers of Alkynes on Au(111) Substrate 

      Zaba, Tomasz; Noworolska, Agnieszka; Bowers, Carleen Morris; Breiten, Benjamin; Whitesides, George McClelland; Cyganik, Piotr (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2014)
      Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs), prepared by reaction of terminal n-alkynes (HC≡C(CH2)nCH3, n = 5, 7, 9, and 11) with Au(111) at 60 °C were characterized using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), infrared reflection ...
