Growing nanowires

A new paper published in Nature Chemistry  where molecular nanowires up to one micrometer long were grown on insulating materials using a novel radical polymerisation process. This addresses one of the key issues in molecular electronics  – how to produce wires to connect components.


This was an interdisciplinary project involving some great teams of chemists, engineers and physicists based in Marseille and Besançon led by Christian Loppacher.
