Research Project

Charge transport along molecular wires.
The transport of charge along isolated conjugated polymer chains is studied experimentally by a combination of pulse radiolysis and time-resolved microwave conductivity measurements. Additionally, the charge transport is studied by computer simulations. The combination of experimental results and calculations gives a unique insight in charge transport along molecular wires in absence of complications arising through the presence of electrodes.
