Physical and chemical properties of 1D molecular systems

Electron correlation in 1-D systems show distinct behavior from 2D and 3D systems giving rise to new phenomena. Our aim is to artificially assemble 1D molecular wires on surfaces and study their electronic and transport properties using combination of theoretical tools and scanning probe microscopy.
