The Centre for Molecular and Nanoscale Electronics was established at Durham University in 1987. The Centre consolidates and promotes relevant activities across a number of academic departments within the University, in particular Chemistry, Physics and the School of Engineering. Much current activity is focused on the nanoscale where dimensions and tolerances in the range 0.1 nm to 100 nm play a critical role.
For details of ongoing projects and research interests, please refer to individual staff profiles.
The focus of the Centre are electronic devices enabled by molecular or nanoscale materials. This brings together advanced metrology and processing, materials synthesis and characterisation, spectroscopy and modelling to better understand a wide range of devices including transistors, solar cells, light-emitting diodes, memory and artificial neural networks.
