Kuvaus

Graphene nanoribbons are one of the most promising materials for nanoscale electronics. While various structures have successfully been synthesized by on-surface reactions, curved connections remain less investigated, yet they could prove highly useful in the development of copolymerization technology. Here, we present the synthesis of three different regioisomeric junctions on Au (111) by using 10,10'-dibromo-9,9'-bianthryl and 1,3,6,8-tetrabromopyrene. The chemical structures and the electronic properties of junctions were studied with a combination of scanning tunneling microscopy with a CO terminated tip, scanning tunneling spectroscopy, and density functional theory calculations. We found that two identical nanoribbon-junction interface electronic states appear within the band gaps of connected graphene nanoribbons.
