Abstract

We have applied a new, robust and unsupervised approach to data collection, sorting and analysis that provides fresh insights into the nature of single-molecule junctions. Automation of tunneling current-distance (I(s)) spectroscopy facilitates the collection of very large datasets (up to 100,000 traces for a single experiment), enabling comprehensive statistical interrogations with respect to underlying tunneling characteristics, noise and junction formation probability (JFP). We frequently observe unusual low-to-high through-molecule conductance features with increasing electrode separation, in addition to numerous other 'plateau' shapes which may be related to changes in interfacial or molecular bridge structure. Furthermore, for the first time we use the JFP to characterize the homogeneity of functionalized surfaces at the nanoscale.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 18 August 2015.
All research outputs
#20,284,384
of 22,818,766 outputs
Outputs from Journal of the American Chemical Society
#60,154
of 61,996 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#219,839
of 263,145 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of the American Chemical Society
#429
of 479 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,818,766 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 61,996 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.8. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 263,145 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 479 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
