Field-modulated conductivity in quasi-one-dimensional molecular conductors
- 19 Downloads
Planar molecular conductors between two carbon nanotubes in a polymer matrix have been created and studied. It is established that the conductivity of the obtained current channel can be modulated by the transverse electric field. A sharp variation of the transverse field can switch off the molecular channel, while the subsequent application of the longitudinal field to the channel switches it on again. In order to explain the observed behavior, it is necessary to consider the micromechanics of molecules in external electric fields.
