Development of Dendrimer Single Electron Tunneling Device

Shinro Mashiko, Tohru Kubota, Tatsuo Nakahama and Shiyoshi Yokoyama


we fabricated Au/PI/(Rh-G2+PI)/PI/Au junctions with an artificially layered structure containing a rhodamine dendrite macromolecule(Rh-G2), and observed steps in their current-voltage characteristics with a constant voltage spacing of e/C, where C is the capacitance between the Rh-G2 molecules and a Au electrode.
