Abstract

This dissertation concerns transport measurements in single-molecule junctions using the mechanically controlled break junction (MCBJ) technique. It describes various aspects that play a role in charge transport through single molecules, in order to develop the necessary knowledge to ultimately develop electronic devices based on intrinsic molecular functionality.
