A Molecular Nano Device

Caption:

The computational work of Sokrates Pantelides and Massimiliano Di Ventra of Vanderbilt University involves solving quantum physics equations to examine a form of benzene as a two-terminal nano device. This image, provided by Mark Reed of Yale University, shows benzene’s six carbon atoms (colored spheres), sulfur atoms (gold spheres), and electrical contacts (rough gold surfaces).
