Abstract [en]

Graphene nanogaps and nanopores show potential for the purpose of electrical DNA sequencing, in particular because single-base resolution appears to be readily achievable. Here, we evaluated from first principles the advantages of a nanogap setup with functionalized graphene edges. To this end, we employed density functional theory and the non-equilibrium Green's function method to investigate the transverse conductance properties of the four nucleotides occurring in DNA when located between opposing functionalized graphene electrodes. In particular, we determined the electrical tunneling current variation as a function of the applied bias and analyzed the associated differential conductance at a voltage which appears suitable to distinguish between the four nucleotides. Intriguingly, we predict for one of the nucleotides (deoxyguanosine monophosphate) a negative differential resistance effect.

Abstract [en]

This thesis presents the theoretical studies of electronic transport in molecular electronic devices. Such devices have been proposed and investigated as a promising new approach that complements conventional silicon-based electronics. To design and fabricate future nanoelectronic devices, it is essential to understand the conduction mechanism at a molecular or atomic level. Our approach is based on the non-equilibrium Green's function method (NEGF) combined with density functional theory (DFT). We apply the method to study the electronic transport properties of two-probe systems consisting of molecules or atomic wires sandwiched between leads. A few molecular electronic devices are characterized; namely, conducting molecular wires, molecular switches and molecular recognition sensors. The considered applications are interconnection of different nanoelectronic units with cumulene molecular wires; adding switching functionality to the molecular connectors by applying stress to the CNT-cumulene-CNT junction or by introducing phthalocyanine unit; sensing of individual nucleotides, e.g., for DNA sequencing applications. The obtained results provide useful insights into the electron transport properties of molecules. Several interesting and significant features are analyzed and explained in particular such as, level pinning, negative differential resistance, interfering of conducting channels etc.
