Investigation of nanoelectrodes by Transmission Electron Microscopy

Abstract : Electrodes for making connections to single molecules and clusters must have separations smaller than 10 nm. They are therefore difficult or impossible to image with atomic force microscopes (AFM) or Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM). We have fabricated nanoelelectrodes by different methods to contacts nanoclusters and conjugated molecules and investigated their properties in transmission electron microscope (TEM) and their electrical characteristics at room temperature and at 4.2K. The electrodes are made on SiN4 membranes, which is transparent to high energy electrons and which make it possible to image features of a few nanometers in TEM.
