B2.1 - Electronic and transport properties in graphene nanoribbons as templates for ordered molecular adsorption


Principle Investigator: Prof. Alexander Grüneis

The main goal of this project is to use atomically precise graphene nanoribbons as templates for ordered adsorption of molecules. The project involves the synthesis of different types of graphene nanoribbons, the adsorption of molecules and the spectroscopic and transport characterization. For spectroscopy we apply a combination of Raman and photoemission. Using a method that we have pioneered in our laboratory, we will transfer the synthesized graphene nanoribbon film onto silicon wafers and incorporate nanoribbons into transistor devices.
