A Three-State Surface Confined Molecular Switch with Multiple Channel Outputs
A self-assembled monolayer of a tetrathiafulvalene derivative on indium-tin oxide is shown to operate as a ternary redox switch in which the magnetic and optical outputs are employed to read-out the state. Such surface confined molecular switch exhibits an excellent reversibility and stability and it is thus promising for the development of molecular electronics.
