Ultrafast charge transfer pathways through a prototype amino-carboxylic molecular junction

The chemical affinity between different functional groups represents a powerful mechanism for driving the assembly of complex hetero-organic architectures on surfaces. The improvement of the charge transport (CT) properties of these systems is the key issue for their efficient employment as prototypes of organic- based electronic devices. In this view, we report here the study of the CT in a molecular junction based on the amino-carboxylic (A-C) interaction.

A living bio-hybrid system studied by means of a multidisciplinary approach

A multidisciplinary approach to study the functional properties of neuron-like cell models constituting a living bio-hybrid system: SH-SY5Y cells adhering to PANI substrate

One of the more challenging aspects in cognitive or in rehabilitation neurosciences is the design of functional hybrid systems able to mimic the brain functionality, to connect and to exchange information between biological materials, like brain or neurons, and man-made electronic devices.

Tuning the growth mode of nanowires via the interaction among seeds, substrates and beam fluxes

The growth mechanism of semiconductor nanowires (NWs) is still an argument of high interest, and it’s becoming clearer that simple pictures, such as the original vapour-liquid-solid model, fail to describe the complex behaviours observed under different growth conditions and for different materials.

Interface Functionalities in Multilayer Stack OLETs

Herein is described a multidisciplinary approach to understand the performance limitations of small molecule organic light emitting transistors (OLETs) based on a layered architecture, an innovative architecture potentially competitive with the state of the art and more flexible for spectral emission control.
