Abstract

SUMMARY We examined the current-voltage (I-V) characteristic of metal/polyimide/rhodamine-dendorimer/polyimide/ metal junctions prepared by the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique. At a temperature of 32.8 K, a step structure was observed in the I-V characteristic, whereas it was not observed for the junctions without rhodamine-dendorimer. The step structure was very similar to that seen in so-called Coulomb staircase. On the basis of the model of Coulomb blockade, the possibility of single electron tunneling via rhodamine-dendrimer (Rh-G2) molecule as a quantum dot was discussed.
