Formation of a Molecular Wire Using the Chemically Adsorbed Monomolecular Layer Having Pyrrolyl Groups
A topographical image (a), a current image (b), and I-V curves (c) simultaneously obtained at the same position corresponding to the positions B in Figure 2. Wherein portions pp and pp′ are polymerized layer and portions p and p′ are unpolymerized layer of the PNN monomolecular layer, and regions Pt+ and Pt+′ are Pt electrodes. The I-V curves ppi and pi were obtained using the AFM tip covered with Au at the black and white cross-mark in (b), respectively.
