Investigation of the molecular nanostructure fabrication technique
based on the wet method.


In order to construct novel nanodevices consist of organic molecules, we have been investigating the nanometer-scale fabrication technique such as self-organization. For example, in a vacuum condition, we send molecules to the interface electrode fabricated by micro-machining technique, and then nanostructure will be constructed by self-organization. As a related research, we investigate the possibility of molecular self-organization at solid-liquid interface. We apply Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) method to organic conducting molecules, and fabricate nanostructure controlled in the film plane. Namely, designing structure of built-up molecule, we can obtain nanomaterial controlled in the film plane. According to this design guideline and method, we fabricate dielectric or semiconducting molecular nanostructure, especially nanowires and nanodots. As a evolution of nanostructure fabrication technique, we are aiming at creation of molecular wiring and single electron devices by fusion of the technology currently performed at nanotechnology group.
