Best Poster Award: Younes Makoudi@Elecmol08

Room temperature stable molecules adsorbed on semi-conductors
Younes Makoudi, PhD@FEMTO-ST, won the best poster award during the Elecmol08 international conference in Grenoble on December 12 (www.elecmol.com). The aim of his work is the adsorption of functional molecules on surfaces which plays a vital role in the emerging field of nanoelectronics.

Younes investigated the adsorption of pi-conjugated zwitterionic molecules on a Si(111)-7x7 surface. The preservation of the electronic skeleton of the molecules is explained by the role of their negative charge acting as a shield versus the dangling bond of the surface.
