Probing Structural Contributions to Charge Transport Across Ni-Octanedithiol Multilayer Junctions
Lam H. Yu, Christopher D. Zangmeister, James G. Kushmerick
We report the fabrication and characterization of multilayer thin films incorporating 1,8-octanedithiols and Ni atoms. Low-temperature charge transport measurements exhibit inelastic co-tunneling and resonant tunneling features that correspond energetically to vibrational excitations of the molecular multilayer. Several junctions exhibit changes in conductance features characteristic of charge defect-gating. Transport through our junctions is shown to be dominatedby the intrinsic properties of the multilayer.
