                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 four topics and a support lab.

                • Molecular-scale electronics, physics & electronic transport at molecular scale, functional molecular devices (PI : Dr. Stephane Lenfant).
                • Organic nano-electronics (PI : Prof. Kamal Lmimouni).
                • Neuro-inspired nano-electronics & bioelectronics (PI : Dr. Fabien Alibart).
                • 0D nanostructures & devices (until mid-2016, PI : Dr. Nicolas Clement).
                • These research are supported by a chemical synthesis lab (PI : Dr. David Guerin).
