  • CO and Pt (preliminary)

  • ConclusionsMolecular hydrogen forms a nearly ideal conductor when placed between Pt electrodes, despite the closed-shell character of the free molecule.Single-molecule junctions can be characterized by the vibration modes, their stretching dependence, by the conductance and by the number of conduction channels.Hydrogen forms a good test-case for model calculations.More work on larger organic molecules

  • Switching behavior for HD

  • PtHD puzzleSwitching during stretching

    Minute amount of hydrogenExact dosage hard to establish, since it condenses at 4.2 K. Equilibrium pressure is 10-6mbar.

    At low bias voltage lots of weight below 1 G0.Peak at 1 becomes more pronounced for higher bias.Above 200 mV we recover the clean Pt histogram.Attributed to local heating.H is monovalent.Numerical calculation for Pt-H-H-Pt bridge gives G close to oneBinding energy per Pt-H bond is 2.4 eV: strong bond!Back so single curve: select a plateau at 1 G0.So from hw we see a step in conductance
