                          Nanostructures, nanoComponents & Molecules


                          The NCM group (Nanostructures, nanoComponents & Molecules) is interested in the physics of nanostructures and nanodevices made of organic molecules and/or hybrid systems involving organic molecules, inorganic metal and/or semiconductor nanostructures. We contribute to knowledge development, studying the fundamental electronic and transport properties of various molecular devices based on self-assembled monolayers, small ensemble of molecules, supramolecular assembly of molecules and nano-objects. We also design, fabricate and study functional molecular devices such as memory, switch, memristor (memory-resistor) and synapstor (synapse-transistor).

                          Our research objectives are:

                          • design and characterization of molecular and nanoscale electronic devices
                          • elucidation of fundamental electronic properties of these molecular and nanoscale devices
                          • study of functional molecular devices and integrated molecular systems
                          • exploration of new device concepts.

                          Organization. The research activities are organized in three topics and a support lab.

                          • Physics & electronic transport at molecular scale, functional molecular devices (PI : Dr. Stephane Lenfant).
                          • Organic devices (PI : Prof. Kamal Lmimouni).
                          • Neuro-inspired devices (PI : Dr. Fabien Alibart).
                          • These research are supported by a chemical synthesis lab (PI : Dr. David Guerin).
