Charge transport through nanostructure

Dr. Wenjie LiangPostdoctoral ResearcherLawrence Berkeley National Lab

Nanostructures including nanotube, nanowire, nanoparticles and single molecules are promising materials for advanced electronics as well as fundamental studies. When dimensions of a material are smaller than certain characteristic length, new phenomena show up in the corresponding research field. In this talk, I will discuss two type charge transport processes through nanoscale structure: coherent electron transport in single carbon nanotube and single molecules; ionic transport through individual inorganic nanotube heterojuction. Through this discussion, I hope to show some ways how nanostructure devices could be used to address many important problems in electronics, spintronics and energy science.
