Prof Colin Lambert (Lancaster University) - Quantum-interference-enhanced thermoelectricity in single-molecule junctions
Date: 15 February 2017 Time: 15:00 - 16:00
Although the dream of manipulating quantum interference in single molecules has been discussed for many years, experimental evidence of the effect of quantum interference on the room-temperature electrical conductance of single-molecules was reported only recently.
In this talk, I will present a brief outline of current understanding of quantum interference in single-molecules and then discuss recent results demonstrating how room-temperature quantum interference and room-temperature phonon interference can be exploited to increase the thermoelectric performance of single molecules and assemblies of molecules connected to nano-gap electrodes.
