The Molecular Organic Superconductor
A scanning electron microscope (SEM) image of the molecular organic superconductor (TMTSF)2ClO4 (green), contacted with five Pt nanowires (yellow) and Au micro-electrodes (gold) using focused ion-beam and electron beam lithography deposition in the Boston College Nanofabrication Clean Room. This allows us to study "finite size effects" in micro- and nano-scale correlated electron systems, when surface physics begin to dominate over volume effects.
