Molecular Electronics and Spintronics

The use of molecules as active components in electronic devices will permit to further progress towards device miniaturization since ultimately a bit of data information will be stored in a single molecule. In NANOMOL efforts are being placed on the design, synthesis and application of electroactive molecular systems that can act as wires, switches or rectifiers. Further, we are working on the emerging field of organic spintronics that aims at exploiting not only the charge but also the spin of the molecules to develop memory devices.
