Highly-effective gating of single-molecule junctions: an electrochemical approach

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report an electrochemical gating approach with ∼100% efficiency to tune the conductance of single-molecule 4,4′-bipyridine junctions using scanning-tunnelling-microscopy break junction technique. Density functional theory calculation suggests that electrochemical gating aligns molecular frontier orbitals relative to the electrode Fermi-level, switching the molecule from an off resonance state to “partial” resonance.
