Abstract

The transport properties of metal-molecule-metal junctions containing a monolayer of conjugated and saturated molecules with characteristic dimensions in the range 30-300 nm are correlated with microscopic topography, stress and chemical bonding at the metal-molecule interfaces. Our statistically significant dataset allows us to conclude that the conductivity of organic molecules ∼1.5 nm long is at least four orders of magnitude lower than is commonly believed.
