Molecular systems are assemblies of molecules designed to possess special qualities and desired functionality. Such systems are important because they provide materials with novel properties, and they will be particularly useful for minimizing electronic devices. In this two volume work, the first volume, subtitled 'From Molecules to Molecular Systems', covered the fundamentals of molecular design, while volume 2 deals with the potential applications of molecular systems. Information transduction and energy conversion are the basis of any practical device, and these considerations, along with the required interconnections and interfaces, are analyzed to produce the architectural design for a molecular system. The preparation of molecular systems is also considered, including that of self-organizing molecular assemblies, ultrathin films, and ultrafine particles.Volume 2: From Molecular Systems to Molecular Devices Kenichi Honda ... For separation control, the steep decrease in a tunneling current, a shear force, or the intensity of an evanescent wave with an increase in the separation has been ... Figure 2.2-12 shows a schematic diagram of our present noncontact AFM-SNOM.
