Ordered nanotemplate for molecular electronics

One of the current challenges in nanoelectronics is to provide a template for the growth of electrodes at the nanoscale to improve the packing density for higher speed and lower power consumption. Since the early 2000’s, several groups have demonstrated long-range ordered nanoparticle (NP) nucleation on several surfaces, like graphene/Ir(111) or ultra-thin Al2O3 layer on Ni3Al(111). These nanotemplates can be used as a playground for nanoelectronics, plasmonics and heterogeneous catalysis purposes by using core/shell NPs (plasmonic, magnetic, semiconductor) and organic molecules that functionalize or link NPs.

In this talk, I will present the development and investigation of long-range ordered nanoparticle arrays prior to organic molecule deposition, using a multiscale technique approach (electron diffraction, STM microscopy, vibrational and UV/Vis spectroscopies) that have been developed for this project. The impact of the oxide growth parameters on the long-range ordering of the NP array will be discussed. We determine the monometallic NP geometry and core/shell NP interface quality for NP sizes ranging from several atoms up to coalescence, by using Vibrational Sum Frequency Generation. The plasmonic response of core/shell NPs has been addressed using UV-Vis Differential Reflectivity Spectroscopy by means of core size and shell thickness effects. The interest in using NP and oxide layer electronic properties for nanomemory potential applications will be shown.
