Paper Abstract

Nonlinearity is the vital factor for stochastic computing. Toward the realization of brain-mimetic function using molecular network, the nonlinear electric properties of molecular systems are investigated in nanoscale with atomic force microscopy and nano-gap electrodes. Nonlinear current-voltage characteristics were observed for {Mo154/152}-ring, cytochorome c, and cytochrome c/DNA networks where the conduction paths include electron injection into weakly coupled discrete energy levels, electron tunneling through potential well, and electron hopping via Coulomb-blockade network. Stochastic resonance was observed in Cytochrome c/DNA network.
