Assembly and Manipulation of Molecules at the Atomic Scale: “Stiching and Switching”

The use of functional molecules and their assembly into pre-defined architectures are key challenges in nanotechnology and of interest in various fields from molecular electronics over novel materials to molecular machines. We are studying molecules that contain optical, electronic, mechanical or electric functions on surfaces by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) at low temperatures. The central questions are whether and how these functions can be triggered at the single-molecule level and what is the influence of the atomic-scale environment?
