    M. Teresa González got her Bachelor Degree (1996) and her PhD in Physics (2003) at the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Her PhD thesis obtained the Outstanding Doctorate Award. She is an expert in electrical transport properties of matter. She has worked in different fields including supercon- ductivity, during is PhD research, and molecular electronics, that she started during her postdoctoral stay at Universität Basel in Christian Schönenberger’s group (2004-2008). She joined IMDEA-Nanociencia in 2008 as Ramón y Cajal researcher. She is in charge of the IMDEA Molecular Electronics Laboratory.

    We study the properties of single-molecule junctions formed using scanning tunneling microscopes that are designed and developed in house. We focus on junctions with molecules chemically bound to two metallic electrodes.

    Research Lines

    • Electrical properties of organic molecule families: oligo(phenyl ethynylene)s,oligoynes, phthalocyanines, porphyrins... (JACS 2013, JACS 2014, JACS 2015...)
    • Thermo power of single-molecule junctions: we explore to ability to a single molecule of different compounds to generate an electrical potential when they are under a thermal gradient (Nano Lett. 2013, Nature Mater. 2016, Chem. Soc. Rev. 2016).
    • Key factors involved in the formation and stability of molecular junctions (J. Chem. Phys. C 2013, J. Am. Soc. 2013, Chem. Soc. Rev. 2015...).
    • Fullerene-based molecular junctions (Nano Lett. 2011, JOC 2014).
    • Graphene as electrode for molecular electronics. 6. Molecular junctions under electrochemical control.
