I work in the department of Quantum Nanoscience at the TU Delft and am fellow of Linacre College, Oxford. I experimentally study single-molecule devices and am keen to find out how efficiently a single molecule could convert (waste-) heat into usable electricity.
How does electricity flow through small objects?
Single molecules are small – really small! But what if we could harness some of their abilities to conduct and control electricity to create new electronic components? Researchers at the University of Oxford are investigating just this to find more energy efficient ways to transfer information. By looking at electricity at a small scale, we can...
