Robert Metzger, University of Alabama: "The State of the Art in Molecular Electronics"
(Host: Claudio Verani)
Robert Metzger is one of the “founding fathers” of molecular electronics. Along with Ashwell and Sambles, he was the first to realize experimentally the Aviran-Ratner theoretical proposition of directional electron transport through a molecule sandwiched between two electrodes. In this talk, he will discuss the slow historical progress in molecular electronics emphasising molecular rectification: where we started, where we are currently, and where we can go.
