ORNL researchers invented a nanoscopic electrode system for measuring the electron transport properties of a molecule. This invention offers a means of enhancing measurements of a molecule positioned between two nanoscopic electrodes for study. Currently, molecular sensing and identification is challenged by uncertainty in conductance measurements. In this invention, a molecule of interest is pla…
