NanoTransport Laboratory Summary · Temperature dependent molecular conduction was measured by the electrochemical deposition of platinum electrode to the self-assembled monolayer of 1,4-benzenedimethanethiol (BDMT) in lateral configuration. · I-V characteristics are non-Ohmic and asymmetric in all measured temperature range. (27 K < T < 300 K) · For T>40K, the I-V characteristics are semiconductor-like. · For T 40K, the I-V characteristics are temperature independent following the Fowler-Nordheim type Tunneling conduction. ( log (I /V 2 ) ∝ -1/V )
