Welcome to the website of the group Atomic and Molecular Conductors. We work in the field of nanophysics, where we concentrate on the electronic transport properties of atomic-sized conductors. These include single-atom contacts, chains of individual atoms and single molecules. Please browse our list of publications and preprints or the individual research pages (links above) for more information on our work.
