Promise of Nanowires in Optoelectronics Realized By Getting Them Connected

Promise of Nanowires in Optoelectronics Realized By Getting Them Connected

Supramolecular electronics has been solidifying as the bridge between molecular electronics —in which molecules become the basic building blocks of electronics—and the use polymers for the fabrication of nanoscale circuitry. A supramolecule is actually a number of different molecules that are fused together to act as a single molecule and carry out a particular programmed function. These supramolecules are used, for instance, in block copolymer-based supramolecular solutions that direct the self-assembly of nanoparticles . Now researchers at the University of Strasbourg and the Le Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CRNS) in France, along with collaborators from the University of Nova Gorica in Slovenia, have buoyed the prospects of supramolecular electronics by addressing one of the chief problems of supramolecular organic nanowires for optoelectronics: getting ...
