The Future of Photovoltaic Technology: Using Amino Acids as Molecular Electronics
Amino acids are essential to life; however, their importance and their properties can be further extended into molecular electronics, or the use of molecules to fabricate electronic components. One of the most promising applications of molecular electronics is in novel photovoltaic technology. Using quantum mechanical calculations, I have studied amino acid structures linked to gold electrodes and have related stable structures to calculated currents and the ability of the molecule to transport charge.
