Electrochemical fabrication of atom-scale iron quantum wire combined with advanced lithography technique


Author(s): Hui Yang, Liyun Yuan and Xiaodong Dong

Abstract: A method to fabricate atom-scale iron quantum wire was described. The method included two steps. First, an Au nanogap was formed by a series of lithography process on Si substrate. Then the iron atoms were deposited into the gap to form stable iron quantum wire by a home-made electrochemically controlled system. By careful controlling the etching/deposition process, stepwise conductance behavior could be clearly observed. The I-V curve of the formed iron quantum wire showed the ohmic behavior with low bias voltage. The work is of great significance for molecular electronics, interface electrochemistry and sensing.
